    Knoppix Live CD 5.1 to WindowsXP Home Networking


    I found this thread:
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/kno...g-knoppix.html

    I tried it and I am asked for authorization.

    But what username and password are supposed to be used?
    I tried my account with the username.... but it failed.
    I was denied access.

    What do I do?

    background:
    -I am a knoppix n00b
    -My XP Pro system won't boot
    -Am using knoppix to hopefully transfer 40 Gigs of data
    to a laptop
    - Both computers are on LAN
    - Both can ping each other, by IP and Name
    - In Knoppix using Samba Network browser I can see the Windows XP Home
    Laptop. But cannot access it, authorization also fails here.
    - I read that XP Home cannot see Knoppix without a Reg. Hack
    I would prefer for knoppix to See Windows Xp home


    Thanks!!

    Resolved

    Well thanks I guess...

    I got it sorted out.
    In all my trouble shooting and trying to learn knoppix
    it skipped my mind that knoppix's workgroup
    was different than my laptop's.

    I remembered seeing it in passing, i don't even know
    where I saw it to be honest. So I changed the
    laptop to the same workgroup and voila! Bellicimo!
