to see a fat32 drive over network

I was wondering on the best way to see my 2 other drives over the network from my linux box. The 2 other drives are on 2 different computers one is a win98 and the other a win2k.

Thanks for any help....

Assuming what you want is to be able to access the drives on the Windows machines from your Linux box, you'll need to use Samba on Linux and enable file sharing in Windows. You'd be best to set all the machines on a common workgroup, and definitely be sure to use passwords to protect your Windows shares. Try a doing a man on 'smbmount' (or even just 'samba'), assuming you have the Samba package installed on your Linux system.
