I have a Redhat Linux 4.2 and I want my win95 to mount a
drive that is exported from my Linux box. Does I need extra software on my windows 95? I already tried Interdrive 95 from ftp software and it doesn't work.

Thanks.

You need TCP/IP installed on your Win95 box, and you need IP connectivity to your Linux box. You should add the name of your Linux box to the hosts file on your Windows box, and the name of you Windows box to the hosts file on your Linux box.

When you do 'ping linux' from windows, it should work, and vice versa.

If all the above works, you need to run the Samba package on your Linux box. You should then be able to see it pop up in the network neighbourhood. You will need to edit /etc/smb.conf for your setup, details on this can be found in the man page.
