Creating a Home Network
Okay, the magic word is samba
ahh ok ill install that as soon as i get home.. just wanna know, once i get samba, will my windows box be able to recognize my linux box on its network?
you might need to do some simple configuration, but yes
In every article i've read about samba, it says nothing about supporting a connection with XP, they mention every windows os except XP, what's the deal with this?
I've been searching for over a week for Samba in my distro (see under my avatar). So far, i found some file i'm sopposed to modify called um: smb.config. So far i think i got it set up. Now, the first part, the installation or whatever it is you do with it, i have no idea where to start. I found some samba dir in /etc/samba, but there is no README to guide me. I found this other tutorial http://www.troutman.org/tech/linux_guides/samba.html , but i don't think it works like RH. Am i supposed to use the CD to find the samba installer files and install it from there?
Now, i've done some reading and i got to this point:
[root@00e0295c9f23 RPMS]# rpm -i samba-common-2.2.7a-8mdk.i586.rpm package samba-common-2.2.7a-8mdk is already installed

Ive also tried setting up my samba. I even downloaded the 3.0.9 version and when I tried installing the rpm, the error report I got contained something of conflicts etween the samba version that came with my RedHat 9.2 and the new one, so I didnt install the new one.
Anyway, now, using the network servers link on my Linux machine, I can see a shared directory on my windows machine, but I cant copy from/to my windows machine. On my windows machine, no directory on my Linux machine shows up in my network neighborhood section of my windows xp installation.
pls, whoever has more info, kindly help
