Basic Networking With Windows Tutorial


Can anyone direct me to a basic tutorial that will teach me how to share files with my windows 98 computer. I would also like to share the files from windows 98 to the mandrake computer.

a couple of things here, you'll need some basic networking skills and understanding so here are a couple of links for that

http://www.practicallynetworked.com/

http://www.netfilter.org/documentati...entation-howto

secondly you'll need to install and configure samba, there are three great tutorials here

http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/toc.html

http://fluffygerbil.com/samba.php

http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/man/...TO-Collection/

that should be enough to get you going. a search of the network forum should produce some working configurations to look at. hope this helps.
good luck.
