    Right what I want to do is share files between my XP pc's and probably back them up onto a Linux machine. WHY, coz I want to and I don't know how, at the moment.

    So what I've done. Loaded Fedora Core 1 onto a machine (why core 1, coz it's the only one I've got on disk at the moment) and somehow managed to get it on the net. All my pc's are plugged directly into a router for Internet access. I have even managed to find the add remove thing and made sure that Samba (I believe that's what is needed for Windows sharing) is loaded with all the latest updates.

    WHAT NOW!!!!

    Now I am totally lost. Any of you decent chaps out there can help. this does need to be a breath in/breath out guide here.

    and whilst i'm at it, can you suggest any reading material for a linux newbie. You know the sort of stuff, here is the on switch type thing. :blink


    thanks a lot

    ok so u installed samba


    check for /etc/samba/smb.conf

    also try fire it up with the default conf

    /etc/init.d/samba (or smbd) start (usually)


    also check out the book mentioned at the beginning of my master class pdf, very useful, should be linked with CF goodness in the PDF file :)
