    Question Networking


    I have 2 PCs and a Mac on a network at home.

    The Mac and Windows (for testing - I'm a web designer) machines can share files and are networked.

    All 3 machines are wired to the router and work online....

    I'm having trouble with networking up Mandriva Linux.

    Does anyone know how this can be done?

    Many thanks in advance

    What kind of trouble, can you be more specific?

    If the Win and Mac boxes have sharing on and can indeed share files, which you have alluded to, then the Linux box should be able to view those shares now.

    To set up sharing on M07, right click in your desktop, create a folder, right click on the folder and enable sharing. Just yada, yada, yada through the questions.

    Sounds this is a teaching machine in a home environment and security is a non-issue.
