trying to network share files between mandrake 10.1 and win xp. problem is message appears on xp saying
mdkgroup is not accessible, you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission
The network path was not found
If you're just trying to connect xp to Mandrake, the problem AFAIK is that they speak different protocols. What you need is to run Samba on the Mandrake system to make it look like a windows box to xp. Then you set the Mandrake machine up as just another XP system.
