Installing and configuring Samba


Can anyone point me to a good tutorial for installing and configuring samba on sarge 2.4.27-1-386. Basically I want to be able to access files on my XP box and make files on my linux box available to my XP box.

thanks

Try:

You'll get links like:

I prefer using Webmin to administer samba on my servers, and find that it is very intuitive, so you may also want to look into that.
