I purchased this book as a rough-cuts version, and have been with it through the final release. Ubuntu Hacks is complete with some great information on how to give Windows the boot with a more than suitable alternative. The book is geared more toward desktop users than would-be server admins. The final chapter does walk one through setting up Samba as a BDC for a small network.

The only hang-up I found was in a section regarding installing software from source code. Generic instructions provided, do not cover the common errors that occur during this operation.

Great text! Highly recommended...
