how do you make it so my mandrake 9.1 laptop can see my 2 xp computers?
You mount the shares:
mount -t smbfs //computer/share /mnt/folder
Just 'mount //computername/share /mnt/share' is enough.
k... Krux = stupid linux newb cn you be more specific?
Open up a terminal window in linux, cd /mnt then mkdir share
on the windows machine, hit WinKey + Pause then click onto the computer name tab and see what is described as the "Full computer name" (we'll use "box" for the example)
now say you've got a folder shared called "images" go back to the linux console and type
mount //box/images /mnt/share
then cd /mnt/share and issue the ls command (with whatever paramaters you require)
i think thats what they mean... i've never networked win + linux
ohhh gebus I can see this is gonna take awhile...
