Hello everybody

I have a Windows 98 peer to peer network at home with two Win 98 boxes. I recently bought another system and installed Redhat Linux on it. The install went fine, but I have no idea how to hook it up to my Windows peer to peer network or if it can even be done.

I'm using a hub, not a router, if that makes any difference.

Thanks for any info or ideas anybody can give!

Samba will allow you to share files with a MS computer.
[control-escape.com...]
[us2.samba.org...]
There is a graphical user interface call LinNeighborhood [bnro.de] which looks good.
