Hello everybody

Situation: one linux box Redhat 9.0 one Windows XP box and one DSL modem....

I have set up the networks alright so far, because both boxes can ping each other and both boxes have full use of the DSL modem.

However, I can't see my linux box under Network Neighborhood of the windows. Basically my goal is to be able to have a nice file share channel going.

Any idea what may be wrong? Or am I just being totally dumb and file sharing is something not to do with the network neighborhood?
