Suse Linux And Win98 in network for dummy

Suse Linux And Win98 in network for dummy

Post by Laurent Dele » Fri, 08 Jan 1999 04:00:00

I would like to connect my PC with Linux Suse 5.3 and my laptop with
win98. Both have an ethernet card and can be directly connected. I have
understood that I should use SAMBA to do the connection, but I don't
know how !
Is there somewhere any basic help on the package to install, the
configuration to use for a simple network like this ?
How should I configure win98 to see my Linux server ? Should I use a
Novell emulation, start win98 in Novell client or Microsoft Network ?
Where should I tell Linux that my laptop is an user ? Is there any list
of host to configure ?

Thank you for any kind of help
