You need some software called samba -

If you have a graphics screen you can login and get a file manager type
app up, but without samba you won't able to share stuff with PC's, just
ftp files around..

1. Newbie needs a nudge in the right direction for recompiling the kernel with new drivers

I am using RH 7.3 with all the latest RPM updates from Up2Date. I want to
add Avaya Wireless LAN capability to my system. The Linux drivers from Avaya
( download have notes that say I need to recompile
my kernel with the new drivers provided by them. Unfortunately, as far as I
can tell, the notes assume a working knowledge of Linux sufficient to know
how to go about such an undertaking.

I am a relative newbie to Linux but willing to take the adventure. I just
need some help understanding what I am supposed to do. Could you please
point me in the right direction or explain what I need to do to recompile
the kernel with these new drivers?

Thank you!
