Mixed Win/Lin LAN


Hey,

Currently, I have a LAN with several Windows machines. Should I take to Linux, I will likely put it on 2 of those machines, leaving me with a mixed Win/Lin network. Would the Lin machines have any problems connecting to and exchanging data with the Win machines and vice versa? I assume that it is Windows that will have the problems if any. :P

Thanks.
