    You can't access Linux in that manner. You'll need to create a bootloader that allows you to access all your OSs on the PC. A good place to start is with this tutorial.

    u mean, you want to access the linux resources thru network, if so, linux should have a samba server running on it. If samba has been installed already, check its configuration, have you defined a shared folder in your samba, also, the username that you should use should also be on the smbpasswd file., check also if there's a domain server in your network, if your using a workgroup style, then by properly configure the samba, this should be accessible from windows, but if a domain controller exist in your network, since you mention that you have a windows 2003, maybe it server as a domain controller, the linux machine, if im not wrong, should be a member of that domain so it will be accessible from m$ pc

    If you don't know if it works, it should be enough to configure samba this way (it is just a brief sample but if you can access that linux box, everything should be ok and you can configure it your way):


    [global]
    passdb backend = tdbsam:/etc/samba/private/passdb.tdb
    log level = 3

    #If you wan to access your root through nw

    [root]
    path = /
    read only = No

    #Or some test user's home with his write rights.

    [test]
    path = /home/test
    valid users = test
    write list = test
    read only = No


    Of course, you have to create user for samba access:

    smbpasswd -a root

    smbpasswd -a test
