I'm new to these forums and fairly new to Linux. I've had a Windows 2000 server that has been running my Joomla/phpBB website for quite some time now. I recently was able to complete my new server and decided to migrate over to Linux, more precisely Fedora core 6. I installed using the "server" configuration with a couple more options that I felt I would need as well as choosing KDE over GNOME. Now onto the problems....
First I need to get VNC and a network share going so I can remote the Linux machine. I have tried using Samba, but cannot get my windows machine to recognize the drive. It can see the workgroup the Linux box is on, but not the drive (btw how do you change the workgroup?). I as well have gotten VNC to work, but not quite what I had hoped for. I would prefer it to load with the booting of Linux, but instead I have to login into root before it works. I need this because I have to do a complete remote administering of the machine once its up and running, therefore when I reboot after any changes I need to not have to plug it into a monitor/keyboard.
Once I get these answered we'll move onto my Apahce/MySql questions
thanks for any help
