Need help configuring samba to work on a Windows network.


Hello. First off I would like to install a GUI for samba. After that I want to set up my network so that router stays as the server for the network I have four windows computers already hanging off of the router. This machine which has Slackware on it is hardwired, directly connected, to the router via cat-5 cables. I have samba installed already and I just need to configure it correctly.

Please help.

Oh and just so you guys know: I am taking this slowly. Last time, on gentoo when I tried to get it working correctly I obsessed over it and felt like I had taken a hammer to my head by the time I was done. But in that case I took some desperate and probably unnecessary measures that broke the system. After breaking the system I decided to try Slackware and so far I love it.

I'm going to be reading some of the docs so give me a couple of days. Also, thanks, in advance, for being patient.
