My company just got a new computer with win xp pro on it. We are on a linux network (of which variety I am not sure) I am relatively new to the company and was asked to help set this thing up. The computer can browse the internet which is through the network, and I can ping all the applicable IP addresses. What I can't do is map a network drive like I do with the other machines running win 98 and a couple on win nt 4.0. I am not the computer guru, but we don't have one so I am it by default (because I can do more than type and print!) It is setup as I thought it should be for networking but just won't let me map the drive. Any ideas?

Are you asking how to map drives on the XP PC or the linux PC.

XP should not be any different than NT. Can you see the win98 or NT shared drives on the XP box?

All you should have to do is go to whatever drive you want mapped, right click and select map network drive, select what drive letter you want to make and your done. Is this what you are doing?
