No you will not be able to see your linux box.

To do this you need a program called samba, setup and running on your linux box.

This does two things....

It communicates with the file sharing protocols that windows uses, because Linux uses different protocols.

It also allows access to shared directories on your linux machine from any windows machine on your network

If you want internet for your linux box I recommend you do the following.

Setup your Linux box so it has a static IP address. of 192.168.0.2

Run ipconfig in windows and find out the DNS addresses your ISP uses.

Open resolve.conf in a text editor a place these to addresses in there.

Restart your network and it should work.

You may need to set the gateway IP address in your Linux box to 192.168.0.1 in your eth0 config file, not quite sure exactly what its called.

Hope that helps

Samba

You can also try a program for your XP Box. It is called Services for Unix (SFU) 2.0. Do not install any of the Telnet options. It allows you to see NFS from Network Neighborhood.

Ok, lets see if this helps, first off make sure any firewall stuff you have running is turned off.

Then open /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

make sure it has the following

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes

then turn off your linux machine and then reboot your windows machine, finally start your linux machine after your windows machine is started and you have at least one user logged in.
