Mapping Linux Drive to Windows - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, I just installed Redhat Linux 9.0 on my old pentium 120Mhz computer. I need to copy some files to it from my windows computer. I can ping the linux box from my windows box and vice versa. How do I map a linux file system to my windows explorer? I'm new to linux and I'm still learning. What tools do I need to use? Is there a website I can use as a reference? Thanks in advance, Rex...

    Default Mapping Linux Drive to Windows

    Hi,

    I just installed Redhat Linux 9.0 on my old pentium 120Mhz computer. I
    need to copy some files to it from my windows computer. I can ping the
    linux box from my windows box and vice versa.

    How do I map a linux file system to my windows explorer? I'm new to
    linux and I'm still learning. What tools do I need to use? Is there a
    website I can use as a reference?

    Thanks in advance,

    Rex

    There are a variety of techniques, but it sounds like you want Samba
    <http://www.samba.org> - this is Windows File and Print Sharing for Linux.
    You should find a copy on your Red Hat CDs.
