I have installed Samba 1.9.15p8 and I couldn't write to the Win98 PC. I am running Slackware 2.0.36. From the Linux box, I could read/write to Win98 box. From the Win98 box, I could read from my Linux box but not write. Any ideas?
(my /etc/smb.conf) [public] path = / public = yes only guest = no writable = yes printable = no

Maybe you have some problems with Linux access rights on /. If you want to set up a public read/write directory, you should use a public directory such as /tmp. Here is my smb.conf config for /tmp:
[Tmp] comment = Temporary partition (rw) path = /tmp read only = no guest ok = yes case sensitive = no mangle case = yes preserve case = yes
If you want to test SAMBA more heavily from Win98, you may need to configure user access and passwords. Just add the following section in smb.conf:
[homes] guest ok = no read only = no
Don't forget Win98 uses encrypted passwords, so you should add the following lines in the [global] section of your smb.conf:
[global] security = share encrypt passwords = yes smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd
and add users and passwords with the smbpasswd command. —Pierre Ficheux, email@example.com

How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
