Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

am running RH9 and am trying to setup samba. So far win machines have been able to see linux, but unable to access but am still researching through various posts what that can be attributed to. My Q is b4 doing all this, when I type redhat-configure-samba i get:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-samba/redhat-config-samba.py", line 20, in ?
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-samba/mainWindow.py", line 58, in __init__
self.samba_data = sambaParser.SambaParser(self)
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-samba/sambaParser.py", line 24, in __init__
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-samba/sambaParser.py", line 55, in parseFile
token = self.createToken(line)
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-samba/sambaParser.py", line 127, in createToken token = sambaToken.SambaToken(sambaToken.SambaToken.SAMBA_TOKEN_KEYVAL, (name, value), self.parent)
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-samba/sambaToken.py", line 20, in __init__
raise AttributeError, value
AttributeError: ('default', 'global')
I have also typed rpm -qa | grep samba and recieved:
But their is no samba server listed. I had hoped this was why when I selected samba server from startup (main menu ->sytem settings->server settings->samba server) that nothing happens. So I have downloaded the latest version of samba (3) yet on trying to install i get a bunch of conflicting problems with the above mentioned packeages. How do I upgrade or add to the current samba packages this new one? I have tried uninstalling samba-2.2.7a-8.9.0, but replies with the client is dependant on this. Have installed webmin (looks great) but have yet to really try it out as my understanding is that is is an interface to the samba server, whcih doesnt seem installed??
Then reinstall in reverse order. (Alternatively you may try the redhat network to see if there are any updates. The demo version is free and very useful)
The most probably reason that your windows machines can see your samba machine, but not access it is due to the differences in the nmb and smb daemons. nmb will allow machines on the same domain/workgroup to see your machine running. This daemon does not provide shares to access however. That is done by the smb daemon. In order to browse you need to set up shares explicitly, and in a simple case set up a share level access permission.
