Networking SuSe10.2 and XP “Newbie” problem
Ok, I need some help. It is now spring time & I can only justify so much time at the computer when there is yard & garden work to be done.
I am “NEW” to Linus / openSuSe 10.2. Working with shell “bash” I am weak. I learned computing on win95, 98se, & XP. I have had 2 boxes networked via a D-Link router for quite some time
I now have win98SE/SuSe10.2/printer on the old box and XP on the newer box.
I can move files freely between 98SE & XP.
I have set ups cups and can print from XP to 98 or SuSe. I can see linux and some folders and printer in explorer on XP but can not access them (pass word box opens & that is as far as I get) I can NOT see anything about XP box from SuSe.
I have internet access from both boxes / all 3 OS’s 98se/SuSe, & XP.
I have looked at ipconfig from the shell via root & user and everything as far as the ip addresses and hardware appear as it should? Examples in the books I bought SUSE Linux “O’reilly” & "SUSE Linux 10 Bible".
I am overwhelmed with all the separate programs working together to get it to work. Which are needed and which are not needed? ? ? I am at the point that I no longer am sure if I know what a domain or workgroup are.
I have no doubt that someone familure with Linux could set down & fix it in 5 minutes.
I just discovered ken@linux-499o~> info info Da WoW! I have been taking the intro tutorial, my mind is kind of fried with Ctrl+Alt 1-7, I saw for the first time today.
All I want to do at this point is be able to see an move files from XP to SuSe & move files form the shares on SuSe to XP. I no longer even know what question to ask.
When this problem is solved, I will work on installing SuSe on the XP box.
Can someone tell me what info you need & where to get it or what to do.
