Please help setting local network
I am pretty new in some directions of Linux, and believe that my following question would be a piece of cake for You (not as the previous).
I have a local network in my lab, in which there are 2 windows xp stations and 2 linux stations, one of them is Fedora Core 1, and the second Red Hat 9. I have a local network, which works in the following way: I have a connection in both sides between the windows stations, I see shared directories in windows stations from the Fedora, using command smb://ip. I can print from the fedora (printer is connected to a windows station). I didn't succeed to connect to the printer from red hat, and I cannot see shared directories in windows from it (more exactly sometimes I can see them, but cannot access). I have no connections between the two linux stations, even not sure if it is possible to share directories in linux.
So as You can see, I have no knowledge in that issue, but if it is not a task that requires a lot of learning, please help me with it. The most urgent is to make direct connection between red hat and fedora, and to see shared directories in windows from the red hat. If it requires a lot of changing data we can make a conversation in msn. Please tell me if I should give more information or maybe to show some files.
Thanks in Advance,
