What's the best linus distribution for newbie? Is linux mandrake is the most user friendly? Also one thing is backing me up not to use linux because it does not support write for NTFS file system only read. My back up HD it is in NTFS file system. And that's my problem. Also if you install linux what are the file system that's available? Is the file system for linux is readable for windows?



Thank you.

linux pedeng mabuhay sa kahit anong file system. kaya din nya basahin ang NTFS. hmm.. alam ko lang na walang native support ang linux sa NTFS pero pwede mong recompile ang kernel para makabasa err.. meron din mga downloadables na kaya nang maka-basa nang NTFS. depende kung sa anong file system mo ilalagay ang linux kung mababasa sya nang windogz. kung linux file system ang gagamitin mo hindi ito kayang basahin ni windogz. sa fat32, NTFS pwedeng gumana si linux tsaka mababasa pa ni windogz ang files mo... meron lang ata performance hit para kay linux kapag ala cya sa native na file system nya.
because there is no patch for human stupidity

; where is a user's home directory and where should it


; be mounted at?

; specify a generic logon script for all users


; this is a relative **DOS** path to the [netlogon] share


logon script = logon.cmd





; necessary share for domain controller


[netlogon]

read only = yes


write list = ntadmin





; share for storing user profiles


[profiles]

ano ba ibig sabihin ng NETBIOS name ?




Mahalaga ang NETBIOS sa isang server running linux, Netbios is short for Network Basic Input Output System, an application programming interface (API) that augments the DOS BIOS by adding special functions for local-area networks (LANs). Almost all LANs for PCs are based on the NetBIOS. Some LAN manufacturers have even extended it, adding additional network capabilities.

NetBIOS relies on a message format called Server Message Block (SMB).

SMB Is used by UNIX to communicate in DOS and Windows Networks.

try this
smbclient -L win98 -I 192.168.0.1 -U administrator

Hmmm, this indicates that smbclient was built wuth SSL support ...



Are you sure you were connecting to a Samba server? This is the sort of

response you would expect from a Win9X client when you connect to it with

the wrong NetBIOS name, but not from Samba ...



What does the Samba log files say?



Well, this is not going to be an issue until you get a NetBIOS session

going. However, you have to create this file and add users to is.



You can use the smbpasswd command to add users to the smbpasswd file, but

only for users that already exist in the /etc/passwd file.

Using Windows Explorer, share one or more of your Windows drives.



Make sure you can ping the Windows box from your Linux box. If you can't ping, you can't go any further.



Use findsmb to locate SMB shares on your network:

$ findsmb

yup!, it's possible to do that, if your Windows XP filesystem is set to NTFS, you should install Win98 on Drive C (Primary), then you should create a extended partition for other OS, this way, it's much organized on your hard disk, then create a logical partition for WinXP, then the rest of the free patition would be your linux os.

I think you should look what suites you best
, try both of them if you want to know what's great for you, If you prefer stability and high security and you are 100% GNU License supporter, you should look at Red Hat, however if you prefer ease of use, point and click, graphics and pictures, commercial applications, you should look at Mandrake.

Your netbios should match the hostname in your linux box.  Make sure your linux box hostname is not "localhost", windows uses "localhost" and kind of picky about that.



Type 'hostname' on command line, without the single quotes.



you'll get something like 'linuxbox.mydomain.com,'  linuxbox is your netbios.
