Part I. Linux’s Place in a Windows Network

The fact that you’re reading this book suggests that you want to use Linux on a Windows-dominated network. Most of this book is devoted to specific ways in which you can accomplish this goal—configuring a Samba server, using a Linux backup server, or migrating desktop systems to Linux, for instance. To begin, though, this book provides some context. Chapter 1 covers Linux’s features—where you can use it in a network, what types of hardware and software you need, and how it compares to Windows. Chapter 2 continues this examination by looking at some broad strategies you can adopt when introducing Linux on an existing Windows network.
