How can I set up a linux box to act as the main network server for DOS/WFW/WIN95/NT clients? What software needs to be runnibng on the Linux and DOS/etc machines? I have heard of SMB, but I would really like to use TCPIP or IPX if possible. Also, I would like to leave open the possibility of adding an NT server later, so compatible protocols all-around would be great. TCPIP is preferred so that the network can be IP-addx based.
Also, when booting the Linux kernel (2.1), autoprobe finds my card okay, but there are no /dev/eth* files in my device directory. I installed originally with SlackWare 3.0. Are there supposed to be eth0,eth1, etc. files in the 'dev' directory? I have since compiled and
