Standalone Linux Server with Windows 98 and Windows XP clients

Post by Ed Alber » Sun, 15 Dec 2002 03:14:20

Looking at setting up a Linux Server that will be used as a file server
and an intranet web site by approximately 40 user workstations that are
running either Windows 98 (various versions) or Windows XP.  This is a
big step for us, as we are jumping to this from an NT environment.

Am interested in learning in advance what sort of pitfalls to avoid and
the sort of problems, if any, that we am likely to encounter in getting
all of this set up with regards to user accessibility, security, etc.
Also would like some information on general issues to pay attention to
with setting things up.  

We are also interested in learning what sort of problems or differences
the user end is probably going to encounter.

Generally ... hollering help in advance :-)

1. Windows XP -> Windows 98 LAN Question

Hello. I was recently setup a peer to peer connection with 2 computers
(WinXP + Win98SE) and was wondering if there is any way to remove the "Sign
in to Microsoft Networking" dialog box when I boot up the Win 98 Machine.
There is no keyboard at that machine, so it is a bit hard pressing OK. Any
ideas on how I can either press OK without a mouse or kbd, or how do I get
rid of the box?

Thanks in advance
