Sam interviews Rod Smith Author of the O'Reilly BookLinux in a Windows World, a required read for OSSL staff.  In this interview Sam and Rod discuss the impetus for writing the book and what readers can expect as well as Rod's background and challenges faced in penning this useful resource.

Along with the interview, O'Reilly Publications has given us permission to repost an excerpt from the book that provides useful information on configuring a Samba Server.

Big Thanks to O'Reilly for allowing us to make this portion of the book publicly available through Port 25!
