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.

I am trying to set up the SWAT in RH9.0. Following the manual, I looked for the config file "/etc/init.d/swat" to change the disable = no. The file did not exist, so I created one with only the one line. Seems there should be more to it. Is there a default file somewhere?
Also, after doing this, I tried "/etc/init.d/xinetd restart" it failed on stopping xinetd, but the start was OK. In the services, it shows "xinetd dead but pid file exist"
I looked in the xined.d and did a search of the drive for "swat", no joy on either.
There was a backup file for swat~, I deleted that file and now the xinetd service is running. However, when I try to log into to SWAT (http://localhost:901/) I get a message that the connection is refused.
I don't disagree. I have edited the file by hand and I believe I had it setup correctly. I have been distracted by not getting access to the SWAT utility.
Ok, with the LINUX machine I can see the other computers on the network and access to their files. I cannot get access to a shared printer on another windows machine. (Unable to connect to Samba host, will retry in 60 seconds).
With the Windows machines, I can see the linux on the network, but cannot get access ( \\P3linux is not accessible. The network path was not found.)
Maybe this will help you point me to a setup line somewhere.
