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.

ok, I know I'm not a newbie, but I decided to ask this question here because its a newbie sort of question. I am using Fedora Core 3 with a stock kernel, and a wireless network card. I am trying to get access to all my music that is shared on my windows XP box "THEDESKTOP". The computer is on, and attached to the network.
However when I loaded smb4k I tried to access my desktop and it said I didn't have the permissions to access the mount folder. Rather blindly I followed some advice about chmoding the samba directory. so I used chmod u+s /samba/directory, and ever since I did that smb4k would mount the directory and the problem came when I tried to open the folder. it would just hang there with the hourglass, not opening up anything. no errors, or any clues on what to search for.
So I uninstalled samba and smb4k using rpm -e. Now I reinstalled samba and smb4k today, opened it up, it recognized the MSHOME workgroup, and "THEDESKTOP" was there. so I mounted "My Music" and went to open it. smb4k proceeded to freeze, and I had to force quit to get out of it. No error messages were given.
How do I fix smb4k and samba so I can actually open up the mounted folders.
