    Is it Possible?

    .. To network vista and a linux distribution to share files by using windows explorer and the linux networking service? I want to download on my linux computer and be able to view files on my vista media center.. anyone? I have seen various videos and techniques but none of them seem to be as simple as per say networking two windoze computers and using windoze explorer..

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Install and configure the Samba server on your linux system. Then, windows can access/mount those network folders without any problems. You can even assign a drive letter to them. I do that all the time and share files between my Windows and Linux systems without any difficulty.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
