I am using Suse 8.2 and am in a lan with windows machines.
I am already connected to the internet and can access my emails.I have installed LISA and ran the daemon in the hopes that i can see the other machines ont eh lan.
when i type lan:\\ and press enter the only folder i get is "localhost" and when i double click that i get a folder named FISH.when i click that Suse asks for my root password...what the hell is going on...there is none called FISH on the lan.
I have heard about Samba ...do i need it in order to communicate with the other windows boxes on the lan?
thnx for your help

No, you only need it if you want to create a local share for other (windoze) users to see.
1. Are you a member of the same computer workgroup by name? i.e. workgroup=home on your and workgroup=network on the others.
2. Are you using the same ip network? i.e. 192.168.1.1-254 or are you on different networks like 192.168.2.1-254 and there on 192.168.6.1-254?
3. Are you only doing a peer to peer network or using a domain server?
Based on your answers I or others may have more questions,Dan
