A broad question...what do you want to do by connecting those PC's? You would need Samba if you want Linux/Windows networking. Also look at www.linuxhomenetworking.com. One of best tutorial sites out there.

Tux,

File sharing would absolutely need Samba. Don't know about games. Haven't played a game on Linux yet...not much of a gamer anyway

Tux,

LQ Tutorial

There is an excellent Samba tutorial on the LQ site. Trust me, if I can get Samba running in FC4 - you can too!

An ET LAN party doesn't require any special at all if you are all on the same network.. If one of them sets up a server, you'll be able to connect to it. If you set up the server, they'll be able to connect to you - no problem.

Sorry, But...

Our replies are based entirely on the information provided. If there is incomplete information or if the question is poorly phrased - expect the wrong answer. You "searched the forums" but found nothing on how to mount a Windows network share? Incredible!

Samba is still a good idea. I find it difficult to imagine that you will never want to have the Windows machines map to a Linux share. But, your machine - your choice.

I notice that as the evening has worn on your responses have become ever more unintelligible and incoherent {You're from Canada and you can't spell polar??}. Perhaps the first step in solving the problem would be "Put down the beer!"

Other tips to help you get your questions answered could include:

Third times the charm?

I read the how-to a few times. More things started making sense. I tried to follow, it failed %99 of the time untill i got it right.

This is the life of a newbie i guess but i finally got it right. I understand the how-to and i have a working fileshare

Thank you
