comment Mounted Samba Share on Ubuntu Desktop does not respect group memberships on Server
If I add myself to a local group that happens to have the same name as a group on another machine, that's entirely arbitrary unless there is some other mechanism keeping UIDs and GIDs in sync. Take a look at samba.org/samba/docs/man/manpages-3/smb.conf.5.html for a more detailed explanation of how SAMBA authenticates.

comment Linux encrypted password
create a new empty file, copy the script EXACTLY as it appears and save the file. This script will then be run ./scriptname it will then prompt you for a username and password. In php you can include some expect logic, or change the bash script to accept command line parameters.

comment Linux encrypted password
your method is failing most likely due to useradd decrypting the encrypted password and re-encrypting it silently. this is expected behavior with useradd, so to accomplish your goal, you will need a script like the one I posted. It's a simple bash script which you can put in a plain text file and call it from any other application or script if you mark it executable and place it somewhere in your $PATH

There are many reasons your method is failing, namely the way crypt() works.

comment Linux only seeing one disk of 4-disk eSATA enclosure
A couple of variables need to be answered prior to being able to answer your question intelligently. 1. What RAID type is the mediasonic box serving over the eSATA? 2. You are able to see /dev/sda which would be the first disk, what is the reported size of this disk?

Busy Box is a window manager application which runs on top of X, which in turn runs on top of a linux or unix system.
