I'm brand new to Linux and have installed red Hat 5 successfully on one
machine. I want to connect the Linux Box with my Win 95 machine. When
both had Win95 they connected easily using the ethernet cards. How do I
do this with Linux ? Could someone point me in the direction of a help
file ?

Thanks

the easiest thing for you to do is to install the samba suite on the linux
box...

Read up in the Redhat User's Guide on the netcfg tool.  You just need to set
an IP (something like 192.168.1.2) for your ethernet device (eth0).  Then
you should be able to ping the w95 box using that boxesIP number and vice
versa:

ping aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd

You might want to check that the ethernet connection is working using the
DOS utility that (I hope) came with your NE2000 card.  I copied the utility
to a bootable DOS floppy for this purpose.
