Additional software for your Oscar installation

I've found the following programs to be very useful on an Oscar server.
Samba - network file sharing.
Use sudo apt-get install samba
Setting Up Samba: Once your Oscar server is installed, you can create folders where office documents can be shared.
Samba config file: /etc/samba/smb.conf
could contain the following section (there are lots of resources on-line to help configuring Samba)
  workgroup = servername
  comment = Public Folder
  path = /usr/netshare/public
  read only = no
  guest only = yes
  guest ok = yes
for hylafax (see below), you could add:
  comment = Incoming Faxes
  path = /usr/netshare/public/fax/in
  read only = no
Adding a Samba User username: useradd -d /home/username -s /bin/false -n username passwd username smbpasswd -a username
Restarting Samba: /etc/init.d/samba restart
Webmin - is a web-based interface for system administration
  sudo aptitude install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl
  sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.441_all.deb
to access webmin, use:
phpMyAdmin - is a web-based interface for mysql administration
Hylafax - fax software.
This Open Source faxing software makes it easy to receive and store faxes on the server. You can view the faxes and delete the junk or save the good ones in the patients' file.  I added a new page for Hylafax setup at wcworks/node/12
Hylafax and Samba:

This Open Source OCR software can be used with hylafax to convert incoming faxes to .txt files.  The resolution of Fax images is not great, so some editing work will still be needed.
