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.

"The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a protocol for accessing online directory services. It runs directly over TCP, and can be used to access a standalone LDAP directory service or to access a directory service that is back-ended by X.500. For a good overview of LDAP-based directory service, read this document"
It used mainly to manage a huge number of accounts (mail, domains, ftp) at, for example, isp's. It works together, as a user database, with most server apps or any app which has different users and accounts (samba for ex.).
It will replace Samba with Samba-LDAP? I don't see how this:
samba-server-ldap conflicts with samba-server-2.2.5-2mdk
samba-server conflicts with samba-server-ldap-2.2.5-2mdk
samba-common-ldap conflicts with samba-common-2.2.5-2mdk
samba-common conflicts with samba-common-ldap-2.2.5-2mdk
means that. It seems to be saying that the LDAP version conflicts with the non-LDAP version, and the non-LDAP version conflicts with the LDAP version. How do I select just one of the versions to install using urpmi?
