need help for setting up linux networking
I have three PCs in my office where recently I have installed Mandrake 9.1 and Red Hat 8.0 respectively.
Now The situation is, in PC X, I have both Windows 98 and mandrake 9.1 .
In PC Y I have RedHat 8.0 . There are three users , who work on these two PCs rotationally. PC X has a cd writer. PC Z has Windows 98 and has a plotter connected.
Now what I want is
1. User A, B, C should be able to share files from X to Y and Y to X and make changes ( all files, not only their respective home directories).
2. Users working on Y should be able to write cds using the cd writer connected to X ( in both cases when X is running Win98 and ManDrake 9.1).
3. All the users of X and Y should be able to print directly to the plotter connected to Z(win98).
I am a novice in Linux , but knows basic networking things.
I will be ever thankful to you for suggesting how I can do these three things.
Thanks very much in advance .
