    Virtual Pc


    Hi, having some problems with installing Fedora Core 3 on a virtual machine, i got some advice from this link

    http://<br /> <a href="http://vpc.v...html</a><br />

    I capture the rescue disk then reboot after instillation and follow the steps provided, however after i type

    chroot /mnt/sysimage

    as it tells me to i get suck on this part of the help page

    42. Type:
    smbclient //win2ksvr/Share -U david
    but replace "win2ksvr" with the name of your host computer, replace "Share" with the name of your shared folder, and replace "david" with your username on the host.
    43. Enter password for host computer if prompted to do so
    44. Type: get fedora-core3-t3.zip
    45. Type: quit
    46. Type: unzip -o fedora-core3-t3.zip /

    Iíve replaced everything as suggested to read

    smbclient //upstairs/ ****** (WHAT GOES IN HERE) -U tony

    It keeps failing to connect. Can anyone help?

    And where is "fedora-core3-t3.zip" on the rescue disk or elsewhere?

    Cheers

    I just read that link briefly and to be honest I see no reason why you should be using the rescue CD. Once it's installed just boot into fedora normally, and if you want to grab something off a samba share go ahead and do so, there is no reason to use the rescue CD to accomplish this.

    in my experience tips I found on that site work pretty well (root link http://vpc.visualwin.com/ )

    what do you mean by **** (WHAT GOES IN HERE) ????

    you should be putting the name of your host machine (the machine Virtual PC is running on) and a folder that is shared with share and security rights assigned to the user tony, or whatever user you plan to use after -U

    way beyond the scope of a linux forum, but for xp if simple file sharing is enabled give full access by saying allow network users to change my files (on the shared folder) and for advanced file sharing click the share tab and security tab and give full access to the user.

    the reason is we are dealing with Virtual PC, which acts a little strange with non MS OS

    I dunno, I've installed linux onto a VPC many times. I still can't come up with a reason for why you'd want to use the rescue CD for a normal install.
