    Windows XP cannot see Fedora System, but Fedora can read XP

    I have set up Fedora on my system and it comes w/ samba that allows me to see my XP system on my network, but I am not sure where to start on the XP system.

    I am really new w/ Linux, so I will need a little help.

    Again, my system (Fedora) can read the XP system, but I am not sure how to set up XP to read my Fedora files.

    Thanks in advance

    You will need to go through a samba setup. I am not sure, but you might even need to download Explore2fs and put it on your XP machine. I am not sure though... Nope, just set it up on my machine, and you don't need Explore2fs. Just run redhat-config-samba (I think that still works in Fedora...)

    Are you talking about reading your Fedora files over the network, or on the same computer?
    For network, run redhat-config-samba. its pretty easy to use

    If its on the same computer, short story is: you can't.....

    Does Fedora do something different from Red Hat in this instance? I am running Red Hat 9, and when I used to boot XP, I would use Explore2fs to view and copy my RH files over...
