Can someone point me in the right direction?


Still pretty new to linux, did a search on here but no luck.

I have Mandrake 10 and am trying to get it running on a windows 2000 network domain. Are there any links you can point me to with good instructions on how to do this?

Any help is greatly apprecitated.

Whatīs exactly what you canīt do with that? As far as i can see with your description you are trying you have a Mandrake 10 box and other boxes on a windoze 2000 (pdc) network.

What is that you want you linux box to do in this network? You can set the linux box as webserver, mailserver, database server, file server, firewall, etc,

Be more specific with your needs.

Emilio.

Well first I'd like to jsut get it on the network. We don't use Linux here and I'd like to expirement with it as a work station first. I've dug around in the settings but can't really see any place to put a comptuer name, or enter a domain.... just the basics is all I'm looking for at themoment.

For example if I had asked 'How do I add a windows xp comuter to a domain that is currently in a workgroup'. A reply could be 'right click my comuter, click properties, click the comptuer name tab, then click 'change' then enter teh domain here.

Is there a relatively easy way to do something like that with adding a linux mandrake 10 box to a win2k domain?

Also, I'm not really able to get the proxy information right either. I've entered our proxy server with local exclusions but it will not let me on the internet on the linux box. I"m not logged into our domain so it should ask me for proxy credentials and it doesn't.

I'm just looking for basic stuff here, no server or anything big, just a way to log into the linux box and be on our domain.

Well, i donīt use mandrake as a terminal but as a server so i canīt tell you how to set it up as a normal terminal, but if i where you i would play arround with Mandrake Control Center. Its kinda a control Panel in windoze pcīs. You need to login as root, and start an x session. That means you need to open mandrake on graphic mode, once it loaded, you go to menu (little star at the bottom left part of your screen) the go to system / configuration / configure your computer. One there i would go to networking and to manage connections and proxy there you can set up your lan settings, internet connection, proxy, etc.

See what you can do with that. I think you might be able to set it up shortly without any problems. The only good recommendation that i can give to you is that you install mozilla (internet browser) cause the one that came with mandrake as default sucks.

Hope it helps!
Emilio.

I've been messing around in there for a little while. I'll play with it more today.

Thanks for the tips!
