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'm using Red Hat 7.1 and I'm trying to configure Samba so that Windows users can access their home volumes. I'm using WebMin to configure Samba and it appears that its set correctly, yet when I try to log in from a windows machine, via the run command, it gives me an incorrect password error.
What surprises me about this is that
a) It doesn't ask for a user-name.
b) It seems pretty straightforward, and I'm not seeing why its not working.
However this is the first time I've tried to run Samba, so perhaps I'm skipping something really basic.
Essentially I want Windows users, and eventually Mac users, to be able to use this server for file storage and sharing.
Windows sends login you have in Windows as a user name. If you'd like to allow all users to share files in one directory, make it public and be sure if permissions of this dir are allow user to do this (read, write and execute for all).
All of our users have NT accounts on our network. What I would like for them to be able to do is log into the LinuxServer and store files in thier home directory.
I've tested the setup by creating an account on the Linux server that is the same name as my NT account. When I try to log on to the the linux server it asks me for a password, I enter the password for the account, and then it tells me access denied.
Both Webmin and Swat seem to indicate that the home directories are being shared. Unless I'm totally misreading everything.
