Making a File Server

Hi folks,

I'm interested in making a Linux based file server so that it can be accessed from Windose machines. For now i'm still experimenting with samba, and trying to be able to make windose boxes access the linux machine (I've managed to access windows from linux, by the way).

I also want to make it more interesting such that each user on his windose box will have his own directory with permissions etc...

Any guidelines please, or some useful manuals?

Samba is perfect for this. Use this site (plus any others you wish) as a reference to get going.

To the points you posted above, look at chapters 1-6.
