Like I said you use Samba to network Windows and Linux.

I don't know if there's any GUI for installing RPMs, if there isn't check the rpm manpage (man rpm) for syntax.

I'm sure that the newer RH's have the ability to just double click RPM packages.. that may be mandrake tho.. havent use Linux in quite a while :D

The forums are here to help people with their questions, we dont judge people by the questions that they ask, if everyone just wrote guides and used google there would be no need for any forums of this kind at all.

A) show me a point where I actually judged him, I simply stated that his questions have been answered many times over.

B) Sometimes there are plenty strange questions that people in forums may have trouble finding the exact answer too, tada, the reason for forums. His, like a large portion of other questinos on these forums, which are plauged by a vaguness like I have never seen before, was far frmo exact. Judging by his question, he would be better off reading full tutorial as he can't do the most basic of tasks.

You could have simply asked "have you tried searching with google?"

Install Samba to share files from you Linuix box with Windows. If you want to connect to a windows share from your Linux box then you can connect to it from withing your window manager by typing in smb://servername (must have the samba client installed)

to install RPM's from within the gui just right click on the RPM ->Open With -> Install Package. If from command line then type: rpm -i packagename
