 I've recently managed to install linux 
which I'm pretty happy about :) 
I've tried to set up my home network, now 
this is what's giving me the head ache... 
I can get my computers to ping eachother, 
no problems, my XP and w2k computers can 
see the linux box in the network 
neighbourhod they can access the sort of 
first layer of the linux box but no 
further. I cannot access any of the shared 
I ave spent hours and hours trying to 
understand this abd I have re-configured 
smb.comf many times. I think the problem 
is "user" related, I can get a login 
window in XP but only for guest and my 
passord don't work... ether that or a 
"you're not authorized!!!" :( 
any help would be greatly appreciated, I 
think I've done what I can :( and I can't 
be the first ontre to encounter this! 
BTW, I'm running Slackware 8.1, KDE 3
