Delving into how the Linux operating system is constructed and how it works, this book takes the point of view of an administrator experienced in Windows architecture. Covered are the installation and configuration of a network file server as well as user management and file and directory sharing. In addition, information is provided on implementing sample scenarios such as connecting Windows and Linux workstations to a file server or replacing an existing Windows domain controller with a Linux server. Other topics include system backup, scripting, setting up permissions, Windows CIFS, and troubleshooting.
