Woo-hoo! Linux sees my network! Now how do I see Linux from XP?

Hello,

I just put a nic card in my Linux Laptop, booted up and into Linux and
it saw my network and cable internet connection without any problem!

Now the question that I have is how can I check to see if Windows
XP/ME/98Se can see my Linux Laptop? I don't know what my machine's name
is, or how to map to it. It doesn't show up when I browse the network
with XP. (haven't tried the others) Does anyone know what to do from
here? I can ping the Linux Laptop...

(Red-Hat 9.0)

Thanks 

Dave

Define "see".

> It doesn't show up when I browse the network with XP.

That's a Samba thing.  Install and configure Samba if that's what you
want, but I'd define "see" first.  What exactly do you want to do?  If
you want to simply copy files, you can use an scp client, for example.
If you want to do something else, you'll need to tell us.

There is a samba howto at www.tdlp.org (if it's not installed on your
Linux distro) and the O'Reilly samba book is available free online.

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up. However, I went back to it and subsequently realized that I should have chosen the 2nd men...

Windows can't see Apache on Linux machine when in one location, can in other. Linux PC can see server in both locations.
We have two offices A and B, connected by kilostream. We have a Linux box in location A, running Mandrake 9 and the Apache web server. We have some Linux boxes in location B, and loads of Windows machines. The problem is that whenever a Windows box is in location B, it can't see any pages served up by the Linux based web server in A. It can ping it, but if you telnet to port 80 from the Windows machine you get nothing back. If I pick up the Windows machine, and transport it to location A, plug it into the network, all works OK. At the moment I'm using SQUID on a Linux box in location B as a proxy server for the Windows machines in location A, but this is a bodge really. Any idea why the WIndows machiens in location B can't see pages from the apache server in A, whilst Linux machines in B can see A ?

Another great example of the Linux community in action: NOT! (Was: Linux networking is a ball of confusion)
It's a pretty sad testament to the Linux community to see all the hate and venum vented on that poor poster. Are Linux users so insecure with their own selves that they can't understand that not everyone is an expert and that people sometimes get frustrated? It really makes me ashamed to say I am a Linux user because personally I have no desire to be included with the likes of people like those who attacked that poster. Much of what he says is true and is evidenced by the number of Samba questions asked in this group over and over again. Something is surely wrong if the same topic comes up all the time. Did anyone bother to ask if he was running a stock install where Samba was broken? If he hasn't updated it may never work for him and it may not be his fault. Personally I would tell him to stay with Suse 9.0 because 9.1 is far to buggy Well that's my say on it, flame away but I could care less as I prefer to help people instead of attacking them.

BIOS sees 6GB; Linux sees 250GB
I know this question comes up time and time again... but I just want to make sure what I am seeing is true. I have an old Aptiva Pentium 200MMX computer. I want to run FreeNAS on it with a set of three 250GB hard drives. I downloaded the most current BIOS (dated 2003) from IBM for this computer. But, still when I go into the BIOS, it detects the 250GB hard drives as 6GB. But, when I load FreeNAS (a mini-linux distro), it sees the hard drive as 250GB. So, am I correct to assume that if the OS can see the hard drive for what it truly is, even though the BIOS can't... it wi...
