    Redhat 6.2


    Hello all, This is the first time ive used linux and I am trying to get the hang of it. One of my friends gave me a pentium 1 with redhat 6.2 on it. I would like to connect it to my regular computer for filesharing. So here are the questions, can I use ethernet to connect them? What do I have to edit to get it to work? And anybody any good help sites?
    Be kind I know I am a n00b to this

    6.2 is quite old but I think I might have some ideas
    first as root in a term click
    setup
    this should open a menu one of which is networking and yes you can connect with an ethernet. if you don't get anyware with setup try
    linuxconf

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
