Question Home Network


I have a home network (windows computers) (uses linksys wireless router + ethernet asdl modem), can share files between the various computers.

I would like to install a Linux only desktop, connect via ethernet cable to router. Would I be able to use file sharing between this computer and the others? ( I.e can the windows computer see the linux computer and access files and vice versa, as it working at the moment)

Thanks

Yes.

Use Samba.
That way because of the network files/connections, even printers can be shared between a Windows and a Linux computer.
