Question Win2k - Mandrake9.1 -file(folder) sharing?


Hi!

I need some help! I have two machines.One computer is running on win2k the second one is running on mandrake9.1! The first comp is practically a router(has two network cards installed)! The two computers are connected with a crossover cable. I didn't have problems setting up the internet connection sharing. But I'm having trouble with the file(folder) sharing. I want to connect from the second comp. to the first one and see what is in share and I want to copy(for example) those files on the mandrake machine. I just don't know how to do that . So I will appreciate your help!

A picture of my "network":

ISP-----ADSL(modem)-----Firstcomp(win2k)----crossover----Secondcomp(Mandrake)

Thanks!
