In a dual OS network with XP and LINUX, you will need a program called samba. I'm sure there is a redhat rpm for this prog. Also at the samba site there is a gui frontend, so that you can configure it more easily, rather than messing with the config file. Although, you do tend to learn more when you do just that. If you would like step by step help, just email me. I have successfully installed samba, and my home network runs great!
xp media server, 4 xp clients and 2 linux boxes running mandrake. 1 of those being a dual boot. good luck
