My twelfth book, The Definitive Guide to Samba 3, is, as you might guess, a book on version 3.0 of Samba. Unlike my previous Samba book, Linux Samba Server Administration, which covers Samba 2.0, this new book describes Samba and its operation on multiple OSs, including Linux, FreeBSD, MacOS X, and others. It includes coverage of Samba 3.0's new features, such as the ability to migrate a domain from a Windows NT domain controller and the new net utility. I maintain a separate Web page on this book. Approximate page count: 600.

The book's readers probably don't need it, but it was already written, so what the heck....
Here's a list of the book's chapters:
