connecting to a share on linux from windows


hi,
my question is how do i connect to the linux share from my windows box?
I am running Suse 9.1 Pro. I am able to browse and move files from the windows box via the Network Browsing. when i click on it i am able to see windows shares and am able to move files.

i would like to do that with linux. i am UNABLE to see anything on the LINUX machine from the windows network neighborhood. how do i do that?
thanks for helping.

Samba Configuration

There are many post on this site about configuring Samba. I suggest a search for those articles. No use re-inventing the wheel....

First of all, you need to create a Samba and Linux account with the same username and password.
To create a samba user, type:
Code:
smbpasswd -a username
Then you will have to configure the smb.conf file.

If you want a good tutorial on how to configure Samba in order to share files on a windows network.
I suggest reading Using Samba, 2nd Edition -- which is part of the Open Books Project from the good people at O'Reilly.

The book is not very long, so you should be up and running in no time.
