Book on samba

If you want ONE book, check out "Samba Unleashed" (SAMS publishing) is real nice. It's about 1200 pages and covers things like external password servers, etc. It's not *truly* entry level -- it explains network basics very lightly. If you have a basic understanding of subnet masks, routing, etc. then this book can serve as both instructional, and as a reference. It's a bit heavy to carry around tho.

I'd recommend check the reader reviews on Amazon, etc. to see how appropriate a book is for your needs: lots of books are "great", but a reference/nutshell book alone would be frustrating to someone looking for entry level..
