Question connecting to a win9x machine


I am really new into the linux stuff and I hope someone can help me out with this problem. From the manuals I understand that samba is needed to make a network neighbourhood connection, but I cannot get it to work in my houseLAN. Does anybody here have a 'cookbook-recipe' to help me out?

thanks in advance
Eric

This article, while not very detailed, will walk you through one way of doing it.

Unhappy

ok, i tried to install the network via the recipe on http://www.linuxnewbie.org/nhf/intel...ba/samba1.html

everything goes well untill this

- Next we check the /etc/inetd.conf file for a line that looks like this:
- swat stream tcp nowait.400 root /usr/sbin/swat swat

i don't have a file called inetd.conf. I tried to do a search on it, but it is not there. Any help?

Eric

btw I am using redhat 7.1 and installed the samba thing from it.

use /etc/xinted.d instead, it's the newer equivalent
