I have two computers and I have connected both of them using NIC and a hub. On one computer Linux 10 is installed on the other Windows 98SE is installed. In Windows Machine, I installed the NIC and gave the option that I want to share files and printers of this machine. Then as a trial, I shared D: Drive and gave password to it for accessing from other computers. As a result, when I first start the windows machine and then Linux machine, the linux machine is able to use D: Drive (the only shared item). In my Linux machine, the network device eth0 is now automatically activated. In order to access the D: Drive of Windows machine, I open (from gnome) Server (in start manu) it opens nautils and displays Workgroup which in turn takes me to D: Drive of Windows Machine. Some times I am able to copy the files from Linux Machine to Windows machine, sometimes it gives error.
On the other hand when I search for the computer on Windows machine, it simply finds itself. The Linux Machine is not seen.
Could anybody help please? Let me tell you that people talk about script but I do not know where the proper scripts are and how to edit them. In fact, my frustration is that when in terminal, I am not able to distinguish between file/executable file/directory/type of files.
Thanking you in advance,
