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

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

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.
