    I am using your How to SAMBA (Domaincontroller) Server For Small Workgroups With Ubuntu 5.10 "Breezy Badger"

    I installed Ubuntu sever on my harddrive than I

    Log in with the user name and password I set up than I

    put in sudo passwd root

    Than su for my password

    than it asks me a Enter new UNIX Password so I enter another password

    than it asks me to reenter which I do,

    Than it says password updated successfully


    I try to do the /etc/network/interfaces

    but it says Premission denied

    So I am not sure where I got off track

    After it says password updated successfully you must run
    to become root. After that you can edit /etc/network/interfaces.

    OK but now

    I was able to log on as root user but it is telling me Permission denied when I attempt to enter /etc/network/interfaces:confused:

    Use a commandline editor like vi or joe to edit the file.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but what is a commandline editor? is vi or joe something that I would have to download and install? and if I did how would I use it?
