RedHat 9.0 Samba Streaming
Could someone tell me why i can't stream music and movie files on my Linux box?

I have rh9.0. I open up Network Servers can click on the computer that has the file, then i double-click the file and a msgbox tells me that i'm unable to open the file. I have to download it to my computer to open it. There has to be another way. Could someone please help.

Another issue... When i try to view my linux computer with my WinXP computer, i can see the linux box and ping the linux box but when i try to open the linux computer to view the shared files i get an warning msg saying :

"\\Localhost is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network source ... etc."

Does anyone know how to fix that?
