RE: networking questions
As all M$ Windows 95/98/NT/2000 uses a protocal called SMB (Sesssions
Message Block), you will have to install SaMBa (http://www.samba.org). The
debs are kept in net and otherosfs. To configure SaMBa, I strongly suggest
you also download/ apt-get SWAT (Samba Web Administration Tool). Once
installed, use SWAT to configure the smb.conf in /etc/.....and remember to
include a line in your smb.conf: browseable = yes; so that your Win machines
can see the shared directories in the Network Neighborhood.
If you have any trouble/ difficulties, you can e-mail me and I will guide
Where do you want to go today
...as far away from Redmond as possible
Only dead fish go with the flow......
