    Default Smaba Howto: where is it?

    About a month ago I used a Samba Howto document by Swerdna to make my Home LAN effective. Since then I have had to rebuild my computer and am back at the point of not understanding how to see and be seen by the Windows systems on my Home LAN. I cannot now find this document anywhere in this forum. Did I imagine it, or what?
    They said I wasn't fit to live with a pig; my brother stood up for me and said I was.

    If you installed the samba doc rpm it should be in:

    /usr/share/doc/packages/samba

    I have now installed this package. It does not contain the Howto by Swerdna.

    I miss understood what you wanted that is the official HowTo in in
    user/../samba. This is Swerdna's site:

    Great. Thanks for this.

    Swerdna's document 'linhowtolanprimer' ends with the statement "Hope this Tutorial makes life a bit easier for you"

    I'd like to say that it does far, far more than that. There is just no way I could have found my way through a Linux-Windows workgroup set up without this guide. It is indispensable, like a lot of good things from Queensland!

    Grateful thanks, Swerdna.
