setting up Samba so i can access a dir from my other Windows PC's


just installed Mandrake Linux for the first time ... i already managed to get java sdk to work, but i still can't figure out how i can get my other Windows-Pc to access my Linux-Home-Dir on this linux-Machine or vice versa. Would be cool if anyone could gimme the Adress of a HowTo on how to install Samba since i heard you'd need Samba to get disc-access from win->linux and vice versa.

Thanks and best

You may want to try webmin. Its a browser based configuration utility that can help you set up samba (as well as many other services). If not I suggest following the documentation at the samba website to the letter.
