if you mean file shareing as peer 2 peer i use xmule its almost the same as emule in windows and still uses the ed2k network just go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/xmule and download it i used the stable version and it works fine if not better then the win version!

but if you mean file sharing as on your network use samba. if it is installed it should automaticly start at startup just edit you /etc/samba/smb.conf which is realy easy

and suing slackware as your first version of linux that is great if your like me and like to jump in at the deepend so you learn more but if you arnt i would suggest trying suse 9.1 i find it realy easy to use

i use slackware for my server and do a dual boot between suse and slackware on my other machines i love both for difrent reasons

hope i have helped

Yeah, Im a deep end kinda guy. I couldnt get suse to install right on my comp, Im pretty savvy with computers and general. Just new to linux, never really had to use line commands very much, but im getting the hang of it. Do you know where a good walk through for installing it and setting it up is??????

if its the same version i had all i had to do is run the install script i think which at the end told you to copy a file into another folder and run lconfig then just click on the xmule icon in the extracted folder. i cant tell you untill i et home as im at college and using win2k but its something like that im sure, if it is a difrent version i will see if i still have it saved on mys sytem and will give you the link to download from my server

yes

That would be very much appreciated. Im in the u.s.(westcoast), so our times are way off. Feel free to pm me. I love linux, but like I said new to these methods and technics, Im having a hard time finding documented, accurate walk throughs for things. Reccomend any good linux books? Shouldnt take me long to become fluent in these commands, and os. I was thinking the linux bible.
