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 then, I have had Mandrake 9.2 installed for about two weeks now, I have most things under control.
I have Samba set up and this works perfectly with the other machines on the network, i can view the other Windoze machines etc, however I can't copy files onto the Linux machine from the Windoze machines, it just says i have not got sufficient privaliges?? I have logged in with the same user as the linux machine with the same password. The other minor problem is when I view network neighbourhood through windows, my linux box (Lyra) is under the workgroup "MDKGroup", how do i change this to "mattnet" like the rest of the network???
My other problem occurs while using Apache, I have this installed and i can quite easily view files on my own login, myipaddress/~matt/ this works perfectly, however when trying another login this does not work at all, (myipaddress/~other/) again it says;
You don't have permission to access /~other on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
the public_html directory and files inside have exactly the same privilages as the files in the working user group.
Thankyou for your help, and i apologise for any incorrect terminology.

glad to be of service sir, wish i knew more about apache, so i could help there. be sure to check out the port 80 thing, and i'm not sure about permissions on a webserver, so have a look around for that as well. i'd also take a look through the security forum here so you'll be able to secure the server.
