this is my first time using linux so please be patient
i managed to install slackware 10.0 with kde on my old 200mhz pentium which i wanna make a ftp server. however i'm having trouble configuring all the stuff needed for this...
the network has no trouble with hardware as i can browse to smb://jesus (where jesus is the name of my xp comp) using konqueror and i see the files i've shared with that comp... the thing is i wanna do this vise versa. i wanna set the ftp up and leave it lying around without screen etc. and only manage it's files using my xp comp.
what i've read it seems that an application called samba has something to do with having linux and windows comps in lan (smb short fot it?)
any help will be much appriciated
