Laplink like program for Linux?


I would like to know if there are any programs out there I can use with Linux to transfer files from a Windows ME machine to a machine running OpenLinux eDesktop 2.4. Thanks to all who responded promptly to my previous posts.

Is Samba graphical or command line driven? How can I check if it's installed? I would also like instructions on how to use it.

samba can allow you to mount windows shares on a hard drive like windows network mapping. Are your computers networked?

Yes, but I still need to get my network card working in Linux before that will matter.

the laplink program you are looking for is called PLIP

you will need a cable and support for PLIP and it will connect through the printer port
