are you trying to set up file sharing on the same dual-boot PC?

or are you trying to connect a few Linux/Windows PCs over a network?

P.S. Please, someone write a HOWTO about writing sensible posts. Looks like some posters could use a guide :-)

I will add it to the list, but I don't think it will do much good. Its pretty hard to get people to read things like that. So its probably useless.

you're going to want to look for a tutorial on setting up Samba (SMB). It can either be a very easy or a very difficult process (depending on what you make it). I've tried before to set it up, but it's kind of a pain. I think there's a tutorial (or at least used to be) on using Samba on this site. If not, google it.

Regards,
Eric

Sorry, we are usually pretty friendly, but sometimes we can get side tracked.

Samba (the service you use for file sharing) isn't exactly my best area. But here is a good place to start and than come back when you have more specific questions. Its a lot easier for use to answer specific questions than really broad things.

Check this out.

Maybe this will help a bit?

And a side note:

Mercinary, I did not mean to be rude it is just we are not mind-readers here and is it too much to expect an informative post with a as much detail as possible? Please respect other peoples' time and effort that they put in helping out all lost Linux users.

To admins: sorry if I step on your toes trying to enforce some rules here. But I find it a bit disrespectful for somenoe just to throw something nonchalantly on the forum and expect answers right away (hugesjr knows what I mean).

Yeah, we are friendly here, seriously.

Thanx guys, I aprriciate what u do here, its awesome how u guys help losers like me lol.

Ok, I read that thing and it helps me a bit... but it doesn't help me with the windows thing... I dont thing it has anything to do with the samba deal, cuz I've had this happen to me before on an all windows network. For some reason, when I click on "View workgroup computers" it says it cannot view the computers.. I dont know why, shouldn't I atleast be able to see my own computer? I dont get it.

How are you setting up your windows network? The windows network set up wizard is kind of a joke. You really need to make sure that its looking for the right type of network.

Do you have one central computer running the samba server and LAN connection for everybody or do you have a bunch of workstations on a router that connects to your internet directly?

You're always better off when you can have a central computer that everything funells to. I understand that isn't always an option, but it could eliminate some of your problems. Windows doesn't always do well seeing other computer on a router unless there is a program calling the shots at the router.

I've been through every guide on Samba I can find.

Either I am suffering from an enormous blind spot, or Samba is designed to allow Windows desktop and servers to access mounted shares on a Linux box.

The thing is, I need the OPPOSITE.....

I am looking at Linux as a possible desktop OS in my orginazation. I run a very diverse shop with over 40 desktops, two Windows servers and a pair of AS400 midranges. I'm not interested in creating another file server, I already have one running smoothly.

So, how do I map Windows shares to an XWindows desktop??
