http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find the answers to my questions. All the samba tutorials have been far to advanced for what I'm looking for. Here is what I want: 1) Have one folder on my Fedora11 box shared 2) Be able to drag and drop files to/from my WinXP laptop on my home network by doing start -> run then typing \\192.168.x.x I don't have any workgroups set up on my home network, I don't want extra users. I've tried using the Samba GUI config tool that comes with Fedora 11 with no help. I followed this guide: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=94257 until it started wanting me to add users. I just want to be able to watch movies (that are saved on my F11 desktop) from my WinXP laptop up in my bedroom while falling asleep. Any help is appreciated in advance. Thanks (HowTos)
