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 login and mounting and stuff works just fine, but when I try to do a ls in /mnt/localdir I just get "access denied". How weird is that? However it works just fine on my own homedirectory that are located on one of the company windows server? Crazy or am I crazy?
Distribution: Debian (Sarge), Red Hat, Ubuntu, Knoppix
BTW, I recently got access to a new windows share and I had no problem to mount that one! So it feels like the shares that I have a problem to mount are those that has access for 'everyone'. Those shares that I get specific rights for my user work just fine. Do I have to add something to my mount command to be able to mount shares that have the permission ''everyone'?:
You might want to try username 'guest' instead if the share is accessable by everyone.
You could also try writing a shell script and use smbmount instead of fstab...
/usr/bin/smbmount //server/share /mnt/localdir -N
Since the share is accessable by everyone, I presume there is no password protection for it, so that -N option won't ask for a password and just mount that share. If that works you could just stick that command in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local
