Ask for help

Hey ev'ry body!

Can you help me in solving this problem. My Linux machine joined a LAN, there are only two in about 20 computers here are using Linux.

I want to use Linux to access share files on a MS Windows system. Such as \\192.168.0.x\sharename... How can I do this?

You have to use samba for that. Search google for it. Choose the first result and it will tell you all the things you need to do step by step to make it work.

I am using a Slackware 9 release for learning purposes. I will try to use Samba as soon as possible! Thanks guy!

By the way, can you recommend me a book on Linux programming? (I intend to use C/C++ and Perl for my programs)
