Mandrake 9.1 Network File Sharing Question


I have 3 pc's on my network that are connected to each other through a DSL router. Two of the pc's are running Win XP Pro and this one is running Mandrake 9.1. I would assume when I installed mandrake on this pc it auto detected everything correctly because internet works perfectly and I can see the other pc's using LinNeighborhood.

My question is how do I go about setting up file sharing on this linux machine? I have file sharing enabled on my winxp machines but I can't access any of the folders that are being shared on them with this. How do I go about accessing those folders that are being shared on the Win XP box's?

Any help would greatly be appreciated!

you need to use samba for all the linux side of things, and it should already be installed on your system if you chose a suitable install method. http://samba.org
