I am an absolute beginner with Linux and I'd like to have some answers from the guys with more experinence:
I installed Linux 9.1 Pro as guest into a Virtual Machine (VMWare 4.5) wich is hosted by a Windows 2000 Adv Server.
1.I cannot to use USB ports from Linux
2.I did Linux a Samba server and I added it to the WORKGROUP wich belongs my host(Windows)
Now I can see the SAMBA server but credentials asked for (user/password) are not recognized.
3.I cannot see Windows machine from Linux
Thanks a lot,

1. Later versions of SuSE should automatically detect your USB ports, but I'm not sure if this was implemented in 9.1. Make sure that your USB modules are loaded first:
modprobe usb
modprobe usb-uhci
2. Install the SWAT package and look at the documentation for it. It lets you configure Samba easily through a web browser.

3. How are you looking for it? Can you ping the Windows machines?

Edit: You should also note that error messages tend to get logged in the file /var/log/messages; first check here if things don't work as expected as it usually gives some clues as to what may be wrong.

Thanks for answer.
1.The problem is that Linux 9.1 can detect my USB devices in normal installation ,it cannot detect them when is hosted by a VMWare box (the same VNWare can see USB when load a Windows 2000)
2.SWAT is installed,configured but it cannot be started from a browser because URL localhost:901 is wrong.
