Make a Linux workstation part of Windows 2000 Server LAN ?
The problem is that I want to connect this computer to our company's LAN which is windows based. When I login to the Linux machine under userid 'sunil' and try to 'Connect' using 'Network Configuration' wizard, it fails to connect to the LAN, even though the LAN cable is properly connected to this Linux machine.
Any pointers as to what steps I should take to make the Linux machine a part of our company's windows-based LAN? Do I need to create a Windows 2000 server account with the same userid/password as the one I am using to login to the Linux machine, before I use the Network wizard?
