    using SAMBA


    I wish to set up a small lan with 3 linux machines
    I downloaded the latest tar ball from the SAMBA home page. I extracted it, executed the following commands:

    $ ./configure
    $ make
    $ make install

    all the three went off well, and , if i do
    $ whereis samba
    samba: /etc/samba /usr/lib/samba /usr/local/samba /usr/share/samba.

    Is the installation complete with this?
    How do i go about from here?

    If you're using just Linux machines, you'll probably find it much easier to use nfs, this is native to the operating system is very straightforward to set up.

    Yes, all the machines on my network will be running linux.One machine has SUSE 10.0 and the other 3 have CENTOS.
    Can you please let me know how to go about setting it up?

    Use yum to install the packages 'nfs-utils'. Edit /etc/exports on the server (see the man page for 'exports') and add a line for the filesystem you want to export. Edit /etc/fstab on the client (see the man page for fstab) to add an entry for the nfs filesystem. You might need to creat the mount point (i.e. an empty directory in your existing filesystem) before mouting it on the client with the 'mount' command.
