1.You'll need to get Samba [www.samba.org], you can either download the source or search for the rpm file [for the source you'll need GCC of C]]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
note: you should check /etc/samba/smb.conf exists, if it does delete it, otherwise samba will show some errors at installaton, like smb.conf created as smb.conf[blablabla]...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2a. Once the source is downloaded to some directory in this example /downloads , open console and cd /downloads
3a. Type in console tar -zxvf [if the filename end with .tar.gz] or tar -xvf [if the filename end with .tar] filename.zxvf
4a. type ls in console, and goto the newly created directory in /downloads/samba[xxxxxx]
5a. type ./configure [a lot of info will be shown, just wait till it finishes , hopefully without any errors smile.gif]
6a. type make
7a. type make install
8a. type make clean [optional]
9a. now either type setup from console, or goto SERVICES with you're KDE or GNOME, and start up SAMBA [smbd is the name ].
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10. the samba config file can be found at /etc/samba/smb.conf this file needs to be as short as possible since samba checks this config file on a regular basis, and the longer it is , the longer it takes samba to read it.

This was the samba installation [note the latest samba has no seperate nmbd [this is the one that makes shure
that windows can actualy see you're Linux machine on the network]...
Also you're Linux computer will be shown on a network as Windows NT 4.9 [i think]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2.Well actualy yes, and how easy smile.gif [atleast from GNOME], just click on NETWORK SERVERS, that opens up nautilus, and you can see the other computers and their shared drives on the network]

3.Samba is best configured from console mode, not so hard really [you should install Midnight Commander makes life easier in console smile.gif !]. Just edit[with a program ,not this EDIT], /etc/samba/smb.conf

Howto get MC?, well it's probably on you're Mandrake 9.2 CD's, just search for a mc[blablablabla].rpm and install it from console , by giving this command rpm -Uvh mc[blablabla].rpm


Sincerely
Robert B

And PLEASE read this howto from the beggining to the end, this will make you're life a lot easier, and you'll find out
that setting up a file server with samba is not SO hard from console, by editing /etc/samba/smb.conf
