LAN setup problems

I'm fairly new to Linux (much more Mandrake) however I'm tryin to connect my machine (with Mandrake 9.2) to my LAN setup. My machine can view the other machines (three of which have Windows), however, it can not view one machine with Mandrake 9.2. Furthermore, none of the machines can view the one i just set up. Can anyone tell me or have an idea on why My computer can be viewed by any of the machines, and also what changes i need to do so that the windows computers can view the ones with Linux?

hi syxxzonz, welcome to lq. i believe what you are trying to do is file and printer sharing. if that assupmtion is incorrect please accept my apologies. if it is correct, however, you'll be needing the samba. you can find information here

you probably have it installed, if not, look to your install cds. if it is installed, you may configure it several ways, manually editing /etc/smb.conf, or via swat, or webmin. a google or forum search on swat and webmin should get you going if you choose those routes. you may also be interested in linneighborhood, you can find some info here

i think that example is from mandy 9.1, but, it should be similar enough to get you thru. hope this points you in the right direction.
good luck.
