There are several types of file sharing services.

    SAMBA implements Microsoft Windows (SMB system message block) file

    NFS implements basic UNIX network file sharing

    NIS/YP implements basic UNIX network sharing

    NFS-PLUS implements UNIX file sharing with enanced security features

    FTP implements basic network file transfer using IP

    HTTP ala Apache, can implement some browser-based directory tree file

In all of the above, you should also be aware of the various security
conserns associated
with each file sharing method.  Also some systems have "wierd" attribute
(i.e. SAMBA can use the UNIX/Posix file execute attribute bits to map the
file attributes of System, Hidden, and Archive).
attribute permissions must also
be controlled.

1. Linux / Win98 file sharing, cable modem sharing

Hi... I have 3 computers...  one with RedHat6...... and two with Windows
98....currently I am sharing my cable modem between the two win98 machines
using WinGate.  Could I do the same thing with the Linux box using WinGate
off the Win98 box? Let me put it this way:

Can I share a modem connection between a Windows machine and a Linux machine
via WinGate?

If not, I am willing to use the Linux box as the primary host....but I don't
know how to configure it to share the connection.  Any ideas, comments,
suggestions, links, etc etc would be greatly appreciated =)
