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.

Here is the problem. I tried using Samba Config to set up Samba. It properly changed /etc/smb.conf for the server name.
When I set up the shares and added a user only to be allowed to access this share, it did not work. I could not access the share from my WinXP machine.
The user shows up in Samba Config (SConfig) utility as allowing this person to be the only one for the share, but it does not add this information to smb.conf.
I go out of SConfig and come back in and the user is still set up for the share.
So, where is SConfig getting this information if it is not in /etc/samba/smb.conf??
I searched my system for another smb.conf and nothing. I confirmed by changing the server name that SConfig is changing /etc/samba/smb.conf.
I went in an manually entered it in smb.conf and my share now works, testparm says everything is OK.
I would really like to use Samba Config instead of vi.
AFAIK the only configuration file is the /etc/samba/smb.conf. There could be bugs in this version. Make sure your using the ok button. I don't remember any bugs but it has been a long time since I've played with RH9.
BTW there are other GUI configuration utilities. swat, webmin and several others listed on the samba website.
