I need to ask how to share a folder so I can browse to it from a xp and win2k pro machine.

Hey
drop to a root command line and type 'yum install samba'. That'll take care of it. I would also recommend installing Webmin, just because the config for samba is a little easier.

You can also install Samba using the CDs...using the Add-Remove Software GUI.

OK I got samba installed . Took me a while But I can now see the Fedora box from my XP box . and I always could in reverse before.
Now I can see them both But can't browse them . Fedora won't even give a password prompt. And from the fedora box to the XP box it askes for a user and password but doesn't accept it and asks again and again.
Need to do more research on setting up samba. This stuff is brain pounding . LOL Thanks for the tips guys. Allan

Hey
What Mike means is that you need to make sure that the directories you're sharing are readable.
