how to configure my network on slackware 10.0 so i can access a windows network
the main computers i wish to access have xp and xp pro. only my computer has slack. i can't slack 'em all cause my dad would probably go insane since he knows very little about console or how to configure a 3 botton mouse by editing a file.
in windows i can access other computers just by typing the ip address. i've tried that with linux but i don't have access, do i need another package? i really have no idea how to do this.
help very much apreciated.
