"Creating a Boot Floppy"

Step 5 reads: 5) In the command window, type cd dosutils awrite to switch to that directory on the CD and press Enter. Step 5 should read: 5) In the command window, type cd dosutils to switch to that directory on the CD and press Enter.

Step 6 should read: 6) When prompted, specify the filename of the disk image source as ..imagesoot.img and press Enter. The use of the relative path is wrong and should be set to use an absolute path to boot.img. This text implies that the boot.img is under (d:)dosutilsimages not (d:)images.

Chapters 11 & 12. Default firewall config needs to be changed to enable SAMBA and internet services to run over a local network. Admittedly I skipped to the SAMBA section first so may have missed this in preceding chapters, but it would have been useful to have it mentioned in either of these sections. AUTHOR: The reader's understanding of the facts is correct. That is, if host is running a firewall in default configuration, remote clients cannot access services on the host. I don't see this as an error. But, as the reader writes, it would be helpful to remind the reader of this possibility. A suitable place would have been the section titled "Troubleshooting Samba," appearing on p. 214.
