i believe that you would first need to set up your samba server. That would allow the linux machine to be accessible by the windows machine and vice versa.

"//" would only work if they were sharing something, and "//" only if they were sharing something as "c" -- as Lala said, make sure to not only have samba installed but the daemons running as well (smbd and nmbd, IIRC). This will give you access to-and-from (once successfully set up) one box to the other without problem.

i have configured the samba server and i can view all thew files and the sytem in my lan in the network server of the RH9 the thing is that i just want to know if there was an easy way like in windows to access the shared files in the network by using the terminal commands. like the
same " \\door\c" in windows..... i can only see the systems in the lan when i start my xserver or when i mount those samba shared files to my hard drive ........without either mounting or starting Xserver can i see all the systems connecting in the lan..................

and pls tell me how can i access a windows sytem in lan from my RH9 thru to linux works but vice versa doesnt

1. I don't think you can just "shortcut" in with the file manager, because linux uses mount points. But you could configure the mount points to say /mnt/<'ip'> or /mnt/<hostname>. Then just punch that in your location bar.

2. You need to run a telnet daemon on windows to listen for the incoming connection. It is likely that the client you have on windows is just a client.
