I have searched some books on inter-networking and most of those books describe theoretical approach. I want to make a small office network and I have never configured it before. So I need such a book which discuss practical approaches of inter-networking for window and Linux.

Well I guess, I know stack-exchange sites are only for problem solving. So can I contact u by your email address to get answer of my question????? – Jesi Jan 21 '12 at 18:34
If you feel the need to contact me, I can refer you to consultants that I know that have reasonable hourly rates. I, however, do not consult, so I wouldn't assist you. – MDMarra Jan 21 '12 at 18:45
It depends on how do you want to build your architecture. Is it supposed to be a Samba domain, where only some workstations run Windows or do you want to connect Linux workstations to Active Directory domain where servers and most workstations run Windows? – Hubert Kario Jan 21 '12 at 19:13
What are your needs? You need to give some more details. Do you need Server-based Authentification, do you DNS, DHCP... so far we know close to nothing about what you're trying to achieve. – juwi Jan 21 '12 at 20:35

Using Samba comes to mind. While reading it you will naturally have a lot of questions for which Google, SF and newsgroups will help.
