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 two computers connected by a crossover cable. One is a Windows 2000 box, and the other is Slackware 10.0 (kernel 2.6.10). I've just compiled and installed Samba 3.0.10, and am able to access shared directories on the Windows box in Konqueror (different problem, but is there a way to make Firefox recognise the SMB protocol?). Now, I have some music on my Win box I'd like to play in XMMS, but so far the only method that has worked for me is to enqueue individual files (definitely tedious and annoying if one's got lots of music).
I've tried the whole drag'n'drop shebang, adding files by URL, et cetera in XMMS, but without luck. There has to be some way, righ'?
Mind you, I'm relatively new to Linux, so don't get too advanced on me.
Aye, I forgot to create the directory I was attempting to mount it to. Isn't it just wonderful how easy it is to overlook something as simple?
Also, I didn't know why it didn't work at first after adding it to fstab, but of course that was equally simple. I forgot to throw in the user name and password (i. e. "//computer/share /someplace smbfs dmask=777,fmask=777,username=HellNo,password=ForgetIt 1 0").
