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.

Now i have something, this diag howto is excellent: /usr/share/doc/samba-version/docs/textdocs/DIAGNOSIS.txt
Here is what's working:
1. testparm smb.conf give me no error
2. I can ping smbservername from my workstation
3. I can get a list of available shares from my unix box with:
smbclient -L smbservername
4. My nmbd demon is correctly installed, i can get back the ip of my server when i issue:
nmblookup -B smbservername
5. I can communicate from the server to the client cause i get the ip address back when i issue:
nmblookup -B clientname '*'
6. Broadcast from server works cause i get ip from surrounding stations when i issue:
nmblookup -d 2 '*'
7a. i have proper share setup because i can access it from the server itself with
7b. i can even access it from a username i was suspecting problems with:
smbclient //smbservername/sharedfolder -U username
8. PROBLEM: i can't view the shares from the workstation i use
i open a cmd window from my XP box and i try:
net view \\smbservername
i get system error 5, access denied
witch is not explained in DIAGNOSIS.txt
-g 100 <- gruop id 100 to add the account
-d /dev/null <- work directory, null in this case
-c "description of the account" <- only a description
account$ <- username to add, in this case account$ is for a machine account
believe it or not, it works... and it might have been working since a while.
If i use network neibourhood i see two workgroups: workgroup (xp) and domain.local (samba), by clicing on it i can browse and access files on the samba server.
What is strange is that i never join the domain neither can i joint it by using the My Computer Icon > Properties > Computer Name > Change > Domain
i always get an denied access
i used net use and i got in
i went back to network neighborhood and i can browse.
well i didn't change anything from that patch since it was correct from higher in the post.
I am very curious to find out why i can't join the domain, it seems like it concidered it as a workgroup and not a domain.
well, it doesn't want to do it...
i convert the user root but it still doesn't want to login in My Computer Icon > Properties > Computer Name > Change > Domain
I have an unknown user or incorrect password
in gui or cmd line it's the same. :-(
