Arrow How to browse LINUX from WINDOW


I've done a long work on Fedora 4.
Now it's good to see Win2k mounted to my Fedora Desktop.

By any means is there someone on this earth can help me guide the Window 2000 exploring the LINUX folder.

I dunno how to thank you.

REGARDS

Basicaly you have to install drivers for the file system you use (run "mount"). Google for some drivers, then read up on how they work. I think the general consensus is that for the two to talk together, the best way (still) is to share a FAT partition between them.

Technically, this belongs in General since it's not actually a Linux question. Anyway, if your Linux partitions are EXT2/3 you can use Explore2fs to read the files on them. Not sure if there is any software to let you write to your partitions if you need to. If you're using ReiserFS, I found a similar application called YAReG. There are other applications for Reiser, but this was near the top of the list when I searched with Google. Google is your friend, you know (and also search on LQ as this has been asked frequently).

Tell ya what; Now I can wipe and take files on win2K from FEDORA without any modification, just plain FEDORA.

Nylex;I have to run around since my LQ have very limited answer.I'll try the explore2fs.

On window 2K I have to modify a line in system32 just to make LINUX box appear. Funny I'm able to ping to LINUX.

Ping the Linux machine? they are 2 seperate machines? from your initial post it appeared that you had 2 partitions on the same machine. This is the case?

If so you will need something like Samba to share across the 2 OS'

Yes I did, I named the same MYGroup = window and samba.
Still cannot go inside LINUX box.

The box appear but //path not found.
2 partition ? Nope.

I have 2 computer. (running LAN on INTELinBussines hub/swicth).

I CAN MOUNT WINDOW2000 drive on ANOTHER NETWORK MACHINE TO MY FEDORA DEKSTOP and browse+wipe+copy inside the win2k FOLDER from LINUX MACHINE.

I can do NOTHING from window 2000.
________________________________________________
I WANT TO open/BROWSE (FROM http IF POSSIBLE) the FEDORA shared folder from win2k.
________________________________________________
I'd configure all SAMBA configuration, nothing happened on win2k.
Only a dead LINUX box inside NETWORK NEIGHBOURH0OD.

Gee what happened to me......

My pardon;Would anyone be so kind to help me???
