Why ASP-Linux? Are you Russian?

Oh well... you should already have Samba and you should get LinNeighborhood to manage it. pretty straight forward.

Ok, then I assume that you have your drives/partitions that you want to share in Win 2000 marked for sharing.

I never used this distro, but let's try something.

Right click on the desktop and make a link to URL. In the url box, type in smb:/ yes, that is one slash. Then double click on the icon and see if your workgroup comes up for the Win 2000 box. If so, double click on the workgroup name and see if the share drives come up.

Thanks for your help, .
..no, im not Russian.. The reson why i use ASP-Linux is becouse it comes with its own dowloading application.

At the moment on downloading SuSe-Linux, as ive been told that this is the most users friendly version.
