I'm assuming by filesharing your talking about across a network.

For filesharing between the two operating systems....you need samba obtainable at samba.org

Post Viewing files in win partition?

Ok, thanks for the info. But in a stand alone PC can I view files that are on the Win partition. I have a dual boot system.

howzit

check in your /etc/grub.conf file and see how the drive is presented to linux e.g /dev/hd?.

Then take that info place in /etc/fstab the following entry as a mount piont and donīt forget to place the filesystem type.

chow

Actually, it depends on what sort of filesystem Windows is running... if it is NTFS, RedHat and Fedora wont' recognize it. You can get an RPM to fix this, or you can recompile your kernel (which I still haven't quite mastered *laughs*) Most other Linux distributions recognize ntfs right out of the box; but the rumor is RedHat doesn't include support for it because of legal concerns...
Anyway, the here's the link for the RPM to do it and all of the necessary instructions to get it up and running: http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/index.html

Just stick with linux, it can do everything winblows can do, and it's sexxier too!

Wink Thanks!

Thanks guys, I was thinking of using SuSe since RH8 does not have any support anymore. What do you think about SuSe?

Thanks again!

It's a good choice for someone who is just getting into it (myself included) rpm support and all, you can't go wrong. Just make sure that you learn something out of it rather then just laziness.
