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 samba installed, because my parents are on an xp machine, with a huge hard drive, so thats where i store all my files (*grin*) , but i can't access them in Linux. I went through the control center, local network browsing, i chose the lisa daemon tab, and chose a guided setup. After that, i restarted to make sure, and tried the lan browser , but I still came up with this error message.
"The lisa daemon does not appear to be running. In order to use the LAN browser the lisa daemon must be installed and activated by the system administrator"
Ok, so I thought lisa daemon was ALREADY running, since I could configure it in the kontrol center, and i saw no option in there to make it enabled. Please help
great, I can now use my LAN Browser , and I can see both pcs on my network, however I can't see the files from my parent's computer, and the shares on their machine ends with an $ which is an administrative share in windows NT.
I was expecting to see something like e$ or /192.168.1.3/e$ , but nothing.........what now?
Originally posted by davidsrsb The $ signs are a symtom that you have not logged in.
No, he doesn't see the $'s and that may be a sign he didn't log in.
Once you get the lisa running, how do you browse the SMB network?
I usually put "smb:///" into Konquerror, which shows available workgroups. Do you at least see that? It is very strange your parent's XP machine resolves to an IP number. Supposed to be a name. A firewall on that XP may be blocking NetBUI from "advertising" itself.
If its pre-SP2 XP i think the firewall configs are Start > Control Panel > Network **** > [your network icon]+right-click > properties.
Ok, I went back to the windows box, and made sure that the firewall in xp was disabled, and I still can't see any shares from the Linux side. Maybe I am using the wrong protocol in Linux? I usually prefer sharing files from windows through IPX/SPX-NetBeui , and not through TCP IP , i have unbound filesharing through TCP IP. So what should I try next?
