Ok, so I once had a machine with RedHat 9 on it - I installed w/ all the graphical options & Gnome desktop.
I managed to get various things running - one of which was acting as a rudimentary file server for my windows machines.
Now, I'm installing RH9 on my only P133 - in command line mode only... its installed, I've setup Samba and can view my w2k sever on my lan (& read files).
However, my Windows machines can't see my RH9 P133 machine... they can ping it, but can't see it in network neighborhood or access it via its IP (static on my lan).
My router shows the box connectd, but as "unknown name" even though I've set its hostname to "P133" (in 3 different locations - I think).
I've disabled iptables for checking things out and still no luck getting the windows machine to even see the Linux box... again, they can ping it, but that is all.
I'm at a loss for ideas now.. what should I be looking at? Again, I'm in command line only, so no gui configuration tools please
-- I already had that type of setup working flawlessly!
