    networking


    I have 10 windows based pc's and have just succeddes in installing mandrake on a seperate pc. I have a network where we all use the same workgroup name. How do I set up my mandrake pc to be able to see the others and vise versa? I have given the pc's there own ip address and the linux pc says that it it connected but I cant see it from the others.

    On linux, you need Samba, to set up the shares and stuff, on Windows (Xp?) you just need to run the network wizard afaik (I only use Linux networking, no Windows network at home).
