Tutorial


Are there any GOOD (I am new at Linux) tutorials on how to network my Windows XP computer with my Redhat 9.0 computer? Thanks.

What exactly are you trying to do? When you say network do you mean file sharing?

When you put the UNC path '\\linuxbox\sharename' does it prompt you for the username and password?

No I can't get to that step yet...I don't even have the linux box showing up in my network neighborhood.

That doesn't matter. Goto Start > Run and see if you can get it via the UNC path. Did you put the global in the smb.conf file for remote announce?

For instance, if the servername is "linuxbox" and the users home directory is shared as the username and the username is "john", then try:

Code:
\\linuxbox\john
