Joining a home network-windows

I have a Windows network called spider with appropriate subtitles off a Linksys router. When I brought up Linux FC5 it links to the router via DHCP but I can't see it on Win2000 or winxp?
Any suggestions

How would you like it to "be seen"? Do you mean "seeing" as see it's shared directories, or so? Or "see" as if you were trying to ssh (or telnet or ftp or something) to it but can't reach?

If you want to "see" it in the way you see other Windows machines in your network, and their shared disks/devices, you need Samba. But your machine ought to be "visible" (accessible) for ftp, telnet, ssh and such if only the services are running..


here, isnt
