Re: Networking Fedora in a Windows Environment

Does that still pertain if I have SAMBA set to allow access to everyone?

Although you'll probably need super user access so from the terminal type 'su' and enter the root password when prompted.  Once SAMBA is running you can probably access the configuration through a web interface called SWAT.  Open your web browser (probably firefox) and enter the URL  If it says no connection available, then you'll have to enable it as a service.  Unfortunately, I got some other things ot do and don't have time to explain that one now.

It has access to managing programs users hardware, everything.  It also has an interface to configure SAMBA.  You can download a .rpm (Redhat Package Management) file which is easy to install.  Again, I can't explain that now, out of time...
