login as root and in the terminal type setup or netconfig. With these tools u will be able to setup your network settings like ip/gateway, etc.
U said that u had a w2k domain with dhcp setup, with the tools I mentioned there will be an option that says DHCP select that option for DHCP to work. Once this is done u can check to see if your network service is running without this NO NETWORK
. Check this buy typing in the following cmd /etc/rc.d/init.d/network status the response should say eth0 active. If the respoonse says that not active or something use setup tool again u will see a menu that says services and enable the network service. Once this all has been done then check if you linux box has an ip buy typing in the following cmd ifconfig.
OK now that u connected to the network place the following cmd in your /etc/fstab to mount the shares from your w2k box //server/share /mnt/dir smbfs username=user,password=xxx 0 0
Now u are connected and using files on your w2k box
