RH8/XP how to get samba tar file to linux partition


stuff: i have a dual boot linux/xp system.
i have the samba tar file "samba-latest.tar.gz" on my xp partition.
my internet is provided through an XP server on a LAN.


Q1: is this the file i need?

Q2: can i use the internet in RH8 over a LAN, with an XP internet server, to get the files i need to set up samba?

Q3: if not, how do i get the file(s) to my RH8 partition.

any other suggestions, i'm sure this is a very common problem/solution...

thanks in advance (p'-')p

Try booting into Linux and d/l the tar file that way. I'm assuming that you cant just cut/paste it from drive to drive when in XP. I have 2k/linux together and with my 2k I can copy files to the linux partition. Or maybe a bit of hind-site create a small partition using fat 32 as a swap directory for both o/s's

goto you mnt directory

-open a new terminal
-type cd /mnt
-type mkdir ntfs

google the ntfs driver - i think its from sf.net there is a tutorial about installing it - look though ask.com - thats how i found it - see url at bottom for more help!

once it is installed type

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfs -t ntfs -r

that will mount your c drive in the dir called /mnt/ntfs - also that assumes that you windows partition is on hda1 - if not you will have to chnage that part - see below

so if you wanted the windows directory it would be:

/mnt/ntfs/WINDOWS

remember it is case senstive and on my xp install WINDOWS is upper case

check out this page

http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net//

it tells you how to mount the drive automatically and how to tell which drive and partiion the windows is installed in
