My delimma is this...

Primary system is running WinXP Professional, 2 NICs and ICS enabled.
second system is WinXP Professional,
Third system is a RedHat 7.2 box.

I'm trying to get the linux box on the network and I can't make it happen. I can get the Linux box to see the Internet, but not the other PCs, and vice versa.

Has anyone had success in setting up a home network this way?

Windows uses SMB, Linux doesn't have this capability by default. For you to see the Linux box on your Windows based machines you need install SAMBA SERVER. Once you have it installed, you can use WEBMIN to help with setting up shares.

Hope this helps.....
