Question File sharing


Alright, here is my first question. I have a home network running in my house and I currently use windows to share my mp3's and whatnot across the network. What do I have to do in linux so I can share my files like in windows?

Hey what should I download and how do I install it? I hate to ask again since I know what I need but Samba's site sucks. It does not really tell you to much.

it's probably already installed just fine, it will be on your distro cd's if not. the samba howto at tldp.org should tell you all you need to know, as well as plenty of info on this site.

Thanks! I will check that out. I never thought it may already be installed by Mandrake. I will have to check.
