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 tried running /tmp/samba-3.0.24/packaging/Redhat-9/makerpms.sh script and I get the following error;
:command not found:
:command not found5:
:command not found8:
:command not found0:
The RPM Version on this machine is: 4.2
:command not found9:
`akerpms.sh: line 33 :Syntax arror near unexpected token `in
`akerpms.sh: line 33 :`case $RPMVER in
I'm only use to installing rpm packages, not creating them.
Not sure where I'm going wrong, but any help would be appreciated.
don't use RH9. You really must have NO reason to be using it at all. 5 years ago, it was a tenuous thing to be using, now there is surely no good (or even bad) reason to have to use it. Pick a current Distro instead of something that is *massively* obsolete.
The RH9 is the primary OS in a flight simulator which is heavily configuration controlled for a customer. Hoping updating Samba will fix a bunch of issues, and will be simpler then updating the OS which would be a huge engineering overhead.
This is roughly analogous to the concept of trying to maintain a Windows 95 or ME system. My hunch is that updating the OS is the best long-term solution. I have, however, no sage advice as to how to convince the customer of this.
@pixellany: would you believe we still use DOS!! To give you an idea - to upgrade a heap of ball mice to optical devices on this sim your looking at a cost in the tens of thousands for the engineering effort. Configuration Control costs big money.
Are there any good "How To" guides on installing from source in RH9?
I found the error of my ways with this Samba install for RH9. While I was on a win2K terminal connected to the RH9 server, and without thinking I used winzip the extract the package instead on doing it under linux. I ended up noticing there were quite a few source files missing which finally triggered my mistake. After using tar to extract the package, Samba installed fine.
The later version of Samba has since solved a few of the issues we were having with the sim.
