think you need to use samba server... i'm new at this and have file shared

1. Networking Problems: Windows 2000 <--> Mandrake 8

I'm having a problem configuring my network.

I have two boxes.   Both boxes have two network cards in them.  One
network card is dedicated for the cable modem access and it hooked to a
linksys router, the other is dedicated for the local network.

One box is running Windows 2000, the other is running mandrake 8.

On my mandrake machine, eth0 is the internet access.   The router assigns to eth0.   I have eth1 set so I can manually assign an ip
number.   If I assign, I can't access the internet.  If I
assign, all is well, but this doesn't seem right to me.

My samba config is included below.   Who wants to set me straight on
