The computer connects to the internet but I don't know how to connec t it to a local network ot neyworg group.

The system is up and running - it connects to the internet fine thru a nic

You should have Dolphin installed on the system. Open that application. On the Places tab, click on network. There should be an icon called "Samba Shares". Click that to browser windoze shares on your network.

I don't use Fedora, so if you do not have Dolphin installed be default, there will be some app that can access samba shares. You should not have to install anything to see the shares. To shore stuff out from your system is a different matter. You would need to install and configure Smaba server. That is not installed by default on most systems.

Konqueror is another program that can access windoze shares. Different desktops use different programs. At the core of it is samba client. That is installed on most systems by default. It is command line without an app like Dohhin.

My personal favourite program is smb4k. Look in the repos if you want to give it a try.
