You people can't even type...
I know this girl who's afraid of the Internet. She has two identical i386 laptops with no Internet connection. One has RH9, the other Windows 2000. (I can plug them into my ethernet to do 'research,' but that invariably causes her to run screaming from the room). Sorry, I know it's late. Hope I'm not making anyone anxious before bedtime.
But it is literally impossible for me to get Samba working! What is the procedure, step-by-step, by which one connects these two machines with one ethernet card apiece with a crossover cable. That's right, no router. Someone has to tell me, because I could be getting some ass if she can transfer her Britney Spears from win2k to redhat, and vice versa.

install samba on the linux machine. edit /etc/samba/smb.conf to the configuration of the network. Mine looks like this..
Some of it looks redundant becuase.. well.. it didn't want to work for some reason. :) Samba makes a great server, and an ok client.
To copy files from windows to linux.
share the directory, then open a terminal in linux. type up mount -t smbfs -o username=username,password=password //servername/sharename /mnt/servername/sharename.
the /mnt/servername/sharename will need to be created before hand. If you want the shared directories to mount on boot (which I've done,) you'll need to edit your fstab some...
my samba mounts from fstab that auto-mount..
That's about all I can remember. I may be missing something or another, but its late. You can probably take it from there.. :)
