various network questions
1) lets say i was going to setup a network with a few linux boxes and a windows box to control my printer. Would i need to use samba to share the printer on the network?
2) would i need to use samba to view files on a linux machine from another?
3) if i hooked up one of the linux machines directly (via a crossover cable) to the windows machine how would i go about accessing its resources? would i need to use samba for everything including the printer?
i know these are varied, but please be patient.
