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 posted this to the networking forum, but I though somebody here might also be able to help me.
I have two Slackware workstations, each running 10.2 with the 2.6.10 kernel provided in testing. The systems share a local area network. They are on the 192.168.0.n subnet.
One of the workstations has my music and I want to mount the volume from the other workstation.
I can use SSH to connect to the other workstation. It is also configured as a samba server. I can connect in this fashion, but I cannot seem to connect using Juk or Amarok without crashing the apps.
I thought that perhaps I should mount the other volume using LiSA. I've configured it using the KDE control center. It asks me to start the daemon, which is where I get lost.
I cannot find the daemon on my computer in the normal places. The documentation I've found shows it in a couple of different places, but on mine the only one I can discover is under KDE which turns out to be a little graphics demo.
Can someone maybe give me an idea of a couple things to try? Even just a pointer to the right documentation would be most welcome.
You need to enter the following in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
if [ -x /opt/kde/bin/lisa ]; then
echo "Starting LISa"
After entering that and then start Control Center
select Internet & Network
select Local Network Browsing
enter your stuff under Windows shares if you do that
under LISa Daemon go with the defaults in the guided setup.
