Stupid samba question
I'm trying (and failing) to get to grips with Samba.
My eventual aim is to have my windows laptop printing from the Inkjet printer (connected via parallel to the linux box) and the networked laser printer.
As is generally the case <sweeping generalisation>most of the docs are arse! i.e. presume lots of prior knowledge</sweeping generalisation>.
Lots of the docs, talk about "Shares". What EXACTLY do "they" mean by that? Is it shared folders/directories? Facilities i.e. the actual hardware, printers and the like? Or something different ?
p.s. Sorry if that sounds a little grumpy, but I've been trying to get my head round this for days now, but haven't really got anywhere - plus trying to understand what others have asked and said from a search seems pretty hopeless at the moment!
