Can anyone tell this newbie (ME) where I can get step by step
instructions of how to network my RH 8.0 running samba with my XP.
So far
I have nics connecting to a switch/ I can ping the other machine from
the other and I don't know how to cofigure Samba

I cannot see the win box from  RH 8.0, but I can see the Samba server
(localhost) on the Win XP machine , but cannot access it

Just a new guy trying to make the switch

Ohh by the way, XP is the Server with 2 nics,..one going to my dsl and
one going to the RH 8.0

You have to configure the routers to pass broadcast traffic, and you
need to 
make sure they're also passing traffic on UDP ports 137, 138 and 139.
aware that this opens both networks to all kinds of malicious attacks
