Here another question from a simple newbie that is exploring linux and wants all at the same time..... ;-)
I have an installed version of knoppix 4.0 on HD and am trying to get to know this interesting phenomena.
Ofcourse I want it to work seamlessly with my existing XP network so i run into some problems.
To start I want to access the network, xp-pc's and the printer attached to one of them.
The first... i can not install the printer attached to an XP-pc, tried smb but it fails at some password problem while i tried every known password of that pc..... any idea?
Then browsing the network.... Ofcourse a bad idea because MS has some complicated ideas about that. I foundout that I should use LISA. So I downloaded her and after an evening searching and trying i found that i should do ./CONFIGURE then MAKE then MAKE INSTALL then MAKE CLEAN...... Okay, fine, works good so far.
Then the script ends with a remark that i should add something to some path............. You lost me friend!!
The path mentioned in the installation section of the website mentions /ETC/RC.D/RC.LOCAL and that does not exist on this calculation wonder. Something i missed?
Can anybody with a lot of patience start to help?
Lets assume that I am one types that holds the mouse against the screen when prompted by software.....my programming skills are from 15 years ago so this linux is total magic so far.
I have so many other questions but decided to tackle each problem as one at a time.
Thanks for your understanding and time!!
Have a nice day!
