Because of this, scripting languages are becoming easier to learn and PHP is one of the easiest and most powerful yet.
What Is PHP?
For a few weeks, I've been slowly, slowly learning my way around the Open Source operating system Ubuntu Linux. Lots of things work just fine. Indeed, they work incredibly well considering that I downloaded an entire operating system with office software for free from the net. But every now and then I run into things that force me to boot Windows XP or lower my expectations.

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba file server on Debian Etch and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as adding users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has its own home directory that is accessible via SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read/write access.
Consider this a brief introduction to Linux. What exactly is Linux? Well, it's the F/OSS (free/open source software) alternative to both Windows and Mac OS X.
