Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hmm... perhaps we should stick with english so future users can find the answer in this thread.
ok, try setting up static IP's for the computers- 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3 . Are the computers actually physically connected when they are going through the router? if not, then you may need to buy a hub.
Do you know howto configure the linux box? (networking wise)
my thought was for you to test your network at the simplest level- to make sure that that is working. (using a crossover cable, but that is not for the final network, just for testing)
we need to narrow down where the problem is before we can fix it.
The easiest way to network linux and windows PCs is to use Samba. This allows you to 'browse' your network via 'Network Neighbourhood' and share printers/files easily. There is plenty of good documentation available from the Samba website www.samba.org.
My laptop work in my office where there is a network with a Server (Windows Nt) and at home where i have a DHCP-router (DLINK DI-604) . the network will be done between my daughter's PC (Windows XP) and my laptop. we both share the internet connection that arrives to the router trough a cable modem.
i want to print tasks on her printer and share its disc and she can share my printer (my 40 Gb disc is partionated with Fedora Core 3 and Windows XP, so i don't have so much space as i want it to.
i am trying several ways like i used to do on WIndows, but for some reason i can't get the network but i can go to the Internet. Both computers are connected to the router.
