Talking halleluiah !!!


My system is back up with XP now I don't have to mess with linux any more. Well don't let me be lying to you. Linux was just on a slow system and I didn't give it a chance. Plus I need to know it for future employment, cause right now almost everything is eather Linux or Windows which are the most dominate NOSs out ther.

"Well back to my problem" I want to transfer the files on my linux box to my xp box. I have them sharing a dsl connection on the same switch.

How should I exactly do this, How do I create user acc. on linux or should I create a user acc on XP and then have the file sent to xp. Also How can I make linux able to share its files.

Samba

edit ... ok ok ... more detail

make a directory on the XP machine, and share it (eg backup)
make a user on the XP machine that can write files and so forth, not a poweruser or admin (eg billy password yllid)
make a directory on the linux box (eg in mnt called backup)

go onto the linux machine type

smbmount -o username=billy,password=yllid //ip.address.of.xp/backup /mnt/backup

from memory that's right ...

this requires that you have smbmount installed, which comes with ... dunno ... smbclient??

eitherway it will contain the man file which might sort out any syntax errors i've left there...

after that the file system is mounted and you can just copy to that dir
