    File Sharing - Fedora 3 and Windows XP

    Hi,

    Im at University at thew moment, i live in halls where all of the computers are connected to a huge LAN.

    I am able to share my files (and access everyone elses files) using XP. I was wondering if there is a way of doing this when using Fedora.

    I have a FAT 32 Partition and NTFS partition that i would like to share some files from.

    And i would also like to copy some files from others on the network.

    Most of the computers are on the MSHOME workgroup if this helps.

    Any help appreciated. ???

    Yeah, use and configure Samba. I am not on a FC3 machine at the moment, but can be shortly. There is a configurator in there somewhere for this.

    http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/co...fig-samba.html

    Check that page out. That is exactly what you want, and I was describing earlier in the previous post.

    Yeah this does look like a program that would do it.

    When i go to the Download Link, and select RPM, it gives a list of about 50 RPM's.

    This is the problem i always get when installing new software. Which ones do i want (do i need all of them) ???
