Can I delete Windows Workgroup and how did Linux find it?
Apologies for asking two questions in one.
My newer PC has Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.10 dual boot on separate drives.
My older PC has Mint.Both connected to modem/router.
At one time the older PC also had XP installed but Mint is a fresh install on the whole drive.
These PCs were part of a Windows file sharing network under the name of Workgroup and I am trying to replicate this under Linux.
What has me puzzled is that, having installed Samba under Linux on both, the Mint PC is able to show the Windows Workgroup and the XP PC name in that workgroup even though the other PC is running Ubuntu.(If I try to access the XP PC it asks for a password)
Should I delete the Workgroup and start setting up the Linux network afresh?
