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.

I am running knoppix 3.3 and am trying to share the contents of a Hard Disk (/dev/hdd1) on a windows network. Specifically, I am trying to transfer the contents of the HDD (several GB) to a windows XP machine.
How do I do this?
Is there a URL where this is explained?

to browse a windows network share from Knoppix use the smbclient command
man smbclient for details.
on the first option, I believe that there is a "quick" menu item in knoppix that allows you to start the samba service, and share all mounted volumes... browse around the menus, im sure its there (did it last night at home with knoppix.... dont have access to that machine now, sorry
Thanks Peacedog. I can now see my Knoppix filesystem from my windows system, but when I try to access anything, I get a password dialogue. I've tried the root password (which I had set in the instructions at that URL) and have had no success. I've also tried some obvious defaults. (nothing, password, etc)
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
glad you got it going. just to explain, hdd1 is not shared from your smb.conf file. root is
path = /
so anything under root is shared. it's the same thing as if you share your c: in windows but not my documnets. you can still get to my documents from c: , but, you can't connect directly to it. hope that sheds some light, again, glad your up and running.
