I have several newbie questions - any help much appreciated:

1. I run a combination Windows 98 and XP home network - have been looking at
Linux on two boxes at home - one desktop - one laptop - RH 7.3
2 I can get samba to run okay and in each of the two Win98SE machines can
see them as localhost
3. I cannot access any resources on the Linux machines - Win98 asks for a
password - \\localhost\IPC$ - I must be missing a step
4. All I want to ultimately do here is see files on the linux box in my home
directory - for starters - thanks.
