Exclamation ??Linux Red Hat???

Greetings All!

I am new to linux been asking questions but getting nowhere very very fast.

Bought a book.
Think it's in Greek!

Got linux Red Hat 8.
Installed it fine.
Donít know how to use it!

Need to know how to network it to access windows and if I need to install any thing else on windows.

Would be nice to know if I could use two hard drives using a program like VMware-workstation and boot once accessing windows while in Linux (windows being on the second HD).

Can you tell me where I can find some walkthroughs or tutorials
both free and pay, not including red hatís walkthroughs or tutorials?

Thank You For Your Time!

1. Make your subject headings more descriptive. We don't that we can helpd you with your problem if you aren't descriptive in the subject. ?????? doesn't really clarify. Now, let's see...

2. The program that allows you to see Windows shares is called SAMBA. Do a search in the forums here and you will find many people who have gotten help setting this program up.

3. The program you are looking for, most likely, is called WINE. It stands for Wine Is Not an Emulator.

4. is a good start.

Now, may I say, congratulations on joining the linux world, and welcome aboard. I know a lot of times it seems like being handed a board and nails and saying, "build a house"... but there is a LOT of documentation, and lots of helpful people. Another great source is google.


if you want to search for linux stuff.

Do a search for "newbie guides" and "tutorials" on there, and you will come up with a LOT of documentation.

Once again, welcome aboard.
