PC-to-PC connection with SuSe 8.2
I'm trying to direct connect a machine running Windows ME with a machine running SuSe 8.1.
I've patched together a DHCPD file following a few threads here, I've set up some IP address ranges to assign to the Win ME machine, but the results I get after running DHCPD is (among other things) "0 leases assigned". Anybody know why it won't assign a lease to the Win ME machine and allow the ME machine to recognize another system?
I am using a cross-over cable, a D-Link network card in the ME laptop, and SuSe 8.2 (with an onboard ethernet card).
I have no idea how to get these two machines to see each other. I just want to move files from the ME to the Linux so that I can wipe out the ME laptop, clean the registry, and start fresh with a decent OS.
I would be incredibly grateful for some help.
