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 have installed RH9, and have also installed tons of additional packages and software.
I just finished setting up SAMBA, and am having loads of problems. I can no longer login as root, or as any other user. A message keep saying that my username or password is incorrect. Since I know that i didn't change any username or password, especially root, what happened, and how do I fix it???
I am currently booting off of CD1, using the "linux rescue" option. I have changed the password on all accounts, including root, but still nothing. I kepe getting a message that says ""Authentication failed". What the heck is this?
at the promt in rescue mode, i typed in chroot /mnt/sysimage. After that, you get permission to mess with usernames and passwords via the "adduser" "passwd" commands.
I just need some serious help here. I have spent three days over the course of about 15 hours of work loading stuff on my machine. I don't want to have to reload this darn thing.
I am pretty darn sure that somewhere when I was setting up SAMBA I told the Linux to validate usernames and passwords with a network server. And since there is not one, no username or password can get validated.
