o.k. for samba see.

http://www.samba.org/

for mandrake, which version...i.e. 8.1, 9.0, 9.1,9.2,..etc.

the reason i ask this is that 9.1 (and newer, i'm guessing comes w/ linneighborhood(which is very similar to network neighborhood under windows) and should be easy to configure.)

hope that gives you some direction. since you're running mandrake, also look here.

http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/man/swat.8.html

(hint, localhost 901)

good luck.
