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.

I've got samba 3.0.0 up and running between my RH9 box and powerbook g4 just fine, but i can't get Swat to work at all. I have added swat 901/tcp to my /etc/services file, i added the following file, called swat, to my /etc/xinetd.d directory:
[root@localhost xinetd.d]# cat /etc/xinetd.d/swat
# description: swat is the Samba Web Administration Tool, which
# allows and administrator to configure Samba using a web
# browser interface, with the URL localhost:901
socket_type = stream
wait = no
protocol = tcp
only_from = localhost
user = root
log_on_failure += USERID
server = /usr/local/samba/sbin/swat
port = 901
disable = no
which points to the proper location, and i've added the following to hosts.allow:
[root@localhost xinetd.d]# cat /etc/hosts.allow
# hosts.allow This file describes the names of the hosts which are
# allowed to use the local INET services, as decided
# by the '/usr/sbin/tcpd' server.
I've also restarted xinetd a few different ways to get it to reset: /bin/kill -HUP -a xinetd, killall -HUP xinetd, and /sbin/service xinetd restart, but all i get when i enter localhost:901 in mozilla is a message saying: the connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:901.
Also, i disabled my firewall, so that isn't it. If anyone has any ideas i would really appreciate it. Thanks. oh yeah, i took out the http's for this post, but they are there in the examples.
thanks for the suggestions, but i've already been poring over Oreiily's Running Linux, Linux Network Administrators Guide, and Using Samba, as well as spending several days googling and tweaking. I think I get the drift of your post, but i'm not just trying to sponge, i'm just not a programmer and am seeing if anyone has been in this same predicament. So, if you have any thoughts, as opposed to a stack of other books i can't afford, i would greatly appreciate it.
