I have a LAN with 4 comps: Linux Mandrake, win 98, win XP and an other which changes all the time (the ginny-pig one!). I am using a SMC Barricade router and there is no problems with the Lan nor the Net access. However, I want to be able to see the computers within the Network, like we do in the Network Neigborhoods in Windows, I want Linux to share my printer which is on my XP comp.
All this is a lot of work, but you see the purpose is really good, I want to migrate my LAN toward Linux but I got to learn it while I keep working!
I am somewhat new to Linux but I am a comp tecky dude, so do not worry if there is a lot of material I got to figure out! I am Linux lover and comp passionated!
