    network an XP machine to a Redhat variant box

    Hi, I'm trying to connect an XP machine to a OpenLX (RedHat variant) using a simple HUB. I want the Linux box to act as a simple NFS/Samba/SSH box.

    Could someone guide me or point me to some tutorials that may help?

    The man pages for these subsystems is probably enough!

    For samba:
    man samba
    man smb.conf

    The SSH config page is:
    man ssh_config
    (although this can be a bit tricky - maybe you need to google for ssh config help, but try and do it with the man page first)

    NFS is the easiest of them all
    man exports
    man fstab
    edit /etc/exports (on the server) and /etc/fstab (on the clients)

    Dont forget to restart the services after you edit the configs.
