To share folders via samba, just use system-config-samba. This works
really good and its very simple.
...but (in FC5) isn't installed when I tell
Anaconda I want to share
files with Windows (Benjy reports that's the case for FC6, too).
Personally I haven't even seen it working, because it crashes silently
in the background (probably because I used samba-swat and it rewritten
the config file) with no clue to the user about why the window isn't
Oh, there's also
I disable firewall upon installation.
To use samba shared folders from others machines, just use menu
-> Connect to server and choose Windows shared in Server Type. This
works very good to.
I hope GNOME 2.16 in FC6 fixes something in this regard, but I
seen working samba browsing in Nautilus, ever. Perhaps it does work with
WINS server from DHCP (which would explain why people with home networks
can't use it) or some gconftool tweaking, who knows. Still, telling user
to choose "Windows share" and enter the address, or better, enter IP
address with some against-logic smb:// prefix, doesn't qualify for
"works very good". And that's why Benjy wants some "how to"
about smbclient, nmblookup and smb.conf, which DO work if you know how
to use them.
