"This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba
fileserver on Ubuntu 9.10 and how to configure it to share files
over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is
configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In
the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory
accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared
directory with read-/write access.
