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've been reading some tutorials/guides/etc here and there about Samba and I'm a little confused. I have two Slack boxes (my main box and an old POS I plan to use as a place to practice a little Apache/web serving) and I want to just transfer files between them. Do I have to have something like Samba running to send say an HTML or script file from my main box to my other "test" server? Most of the Samba guides I've found deal with transferring files between Linux and Windows. My computers are already connected to the internet via a router (hence each other) so I guess I'm looking for a quick and easy solution rather than having to straighten out my myriad of questions and confusion with Samba.

Just a quick update. I got my computers talking and I'm able to send files back and forth using scp following satinet's How-To in the other thread. I'm sure I'll be content with this setup for a while until the novelty/convenience wears off and I have time to look into NFS a little more. Thanks again!
