Jamrock -


I will double check on this information around 8-9pm tonight, because I am at work now... I would really like to resolve this problem so I appreciate all of your help.

I am certain that I do not have netbeui loaded on the windows machine because I took it off... however, I had it on there before. So I'm not convinced that's the problem, but I will put it back on there.

Linux can access the windows share. I believe from memory I have the lmhosts file in c:\windows, as well as /etc/samba on my redhat 8 machine. Yes both have the same workgroup name of HOMESHARE.

Sometimes I can see the linux machine in network neighborhood, and othertimes not... I have heard this is a windows thing... but regardless I should be able to type in \\linux in explorer and get the redhat8 computer... or typing in \\192.168.2.2 should get it as well, but to no avail.

I will tell you what message appears tonight...

And I have put both myself and my wife's user names on both machines... kherrick, dherrick, and our respective passwords.

oneiltj runlevel 1

How do I go about putting redhat 8 in runlevel 1 so I can do the testing that you described?

... drop me a line when you start hammering on this. I'll also go into some detail on run level. Oneilt2002@yahoo.com. I'll try to have my IM up.

SU to root in a terminal session and type /snin/init 1. This will stop many services, including network, and drop you to a CLI and to the root prompt.

init 5 ( I assume your running this level since it's the default. ) will bring you to the GUI login screen else init 3 and startx at the prompt.

Drop a line tonight.

okay... sorry guys

Well, I am sot of convinced my troubles have something to do with elections... and I am finally giving up...

I personally believe Redhat needs to do something about making it a little easier to network with Windows PC's before idiots like me will attempt to spend a significant amount of time with it... Mandrake 9 was easier, but the install gives me a hard time on my new computer...

Um... I think I am going to a different OS for a bit... man I hope you guys aren't mad at me... and I hope the other guy with problems will be able to figure it out.

karl_herrick,

We can understand your frustration. I think you are overlooking something very simple.

Perhaps you can try again when you feel more comfortable with Linux or Samba.

Here are two good tutorials on setting up Samba as a primary domain controller. You may want to try them a month or so from now.

Karl - Yeah, computers suck. That's half the 'fun'. You are VERY close.

My offer still stands. If you see my in yahoo IM - tag me. I'll be glad to give you a hand.
As jmarsh and jamrock indicate you are very close. Don't give up now :-)
