I have edited om smb.conf file and set up swat aswell. I have started the smb and nmd services.
I should mention that I too had problems with Red Hat 9 and Fedora Core 1 getting Samba and NFS to connect to other machines. I also had problems trying to transfer files using SCP. In the end, I used SCP from my Mandrake 9.2 workstation to pull files from my Fedora Core laptop. That laptop now also runs Mandrake 9.2.
Red Hat 9 is probably one of the most prolific distributions in use as corporate Internet servers, so I am sure that there is a way to accomplish this task. As a rank amateur Linux newbie, in two weeks of searching, reading and asking others for help, a solution still alluded me, and so I chose to switch distributions. I prefer the network TCP/IP setup GUI assistant that RH/Fedora uses, but needed to be able to communicate with my other machines, as well as printing to my network printer.
