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.

Hi I am a total n00b when it comes to Samba. I'm afraid I have no experience of it whatsoever. Please can someone give me a begginners guide/walkthrough in getting started with Samba?
Ideally I would like to be able to mount Network drives and share them transparently accross my network, just like I can in Windows. That is to say iit would be cool to be able to mount my windows shares as drives and have them readily avaiable in Linux - and vise versa - have my Linux shares made available in Windows, so that users access either without really ever being aware of the differences... But that is kind of an ideal scenario. Right now I would be happy just to be able to mount my Windows shares in Linux and take it from there.
I really need a walkthrough that is designed not just for a samba novice, but for a networking novice too. I have only very limited experience of both these fields.
I tried reaading some of the docs, but to be honest after the first few minutes I was even more confused than when I started.
If anybody can help out with this, i would very much appreciate it.
Erm... That seems to deal with Old Windows 98 and NT4 machines, I can't see a lot of the stuff it's referring to in Windows XP. Can you possibly point me to a more up to date guide for Windows XP, or simple provide a short walkthrough on how to share resources/files etc between a sigle windows xp machine and a single Linux machine?
