Question Networking Linux and Windows

Alright heres the deal

I am able to run samba sever on my redhat linux 9 box, after running it i can see and reach the machine from my windows xp box. So far so good. However how do i reach my Xp box from my Linux one. I setup a small fat32 partation on windows that i want to see from linux but i can't figure out how to see it.

I would be grateful for any help

You need LinNeighborhood (should be included in your distro) or console mode tool smbclient (in Samba packeges). Of course, make sure the directory/partition is exported from Windows (shared).

To view an SMB share from a Linux system, use smbclient.
