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 have a samba server setup on my home lan running a debian 3.0 server 2.2 kernal samba 2.2.3a-12 I have 2 winXP homedition PCs connected I can see all the computers in the workgroup, I can access shares on the win machines from linux, and I can access all shares on the samba server except for the homes share, even my own , I have security set to user and I logo on fine initially with any user name I have listed except when I attempt to access the homes share, or my own shares folder it requests I re-enter username password, I do so and it spits back at me with my computer name and the username I entered without allowing me access to those folders.
\\Alex\scheidel21 is what it spits back in username box...the valid smbpasswd username is scheidel21....the username alone allows me access to printers, other shares, just not home share any ideas?
only user (S)
This is a boolean option that controls whether connections with
usernames not in the user list will be allowed. By default this
option is disabled so that a client can supply a username to be
used by the server. Enabling this parameter will force the
server to only user the login names from the user list and is
only really useful in shave level security.
Note that this also means Samba won’t try to deduce usernames
from the service name. This can be annoying for the [homes] sec‐
tion. To get around this you could use user = %S which means
your user list will be just the service name, which for home
directories is the name of the user.
Same Configuration => Same Error, even after hints
In principle I have the same configuration as described here: WIN XP Home (German SP1, Workgroup ART ComputerName Greifensee) and Linux (Debian Kernel 2.4.20) Samba 2.2.3a-6 for Debian. I can ssh from winxp using PUTTY to linux. I can even use samba from a WIN2kPro PC but not from my WINXPHOME.
I used the conf file published here but changed : workgroup = ART and uncommented icecast section.
Trying to log on password dialog opens and I give details for my home account on this machine and the dialog comes back with \\GREIFENSEE\kaas the log files of samba in /var/log/samba/ say : passdb/pdb_smdpasswd.cdb_getsampwnam(1367) unable to open passdb database ?
sounds as though it is unable to acccess your database of passwords.....I don't know I wonder if it may be somethings to do with service pack 1 I have heard of it causing problems similar to this with Samba, I suggest if you can try it with an XP machine without SP1 and see what that gets you, good luck sir
