    help looking into my Linux box from my XP box

    I have set up a home network using a syslink router by connecting my XP box in the family room, one HP laptop (with XP) in another room, and in my bedroom I have a Linux box (RH 7.3). I also set up a "share" folder in my main XP box and can see those files using SAMBA from my Linux box. My laptop can also see the share folder; however, I don't know how to make my XP boxes see my Linux box.
    Can anyone help?

    If you go to setup a new network connetion, just type in the usual : \\RHBox\sharefolder . In your network connections you should then see your RHbox. If you do not establish a connection you will not see it by browsing.
