I have RedHat 5.1 running on a LAN with Samba, which works (fairly) well with the PCs. But is there any way I can get
Samba to work over AppleTalk, so the machine appears in
a Macintosh's Chooser, just like an NT Server with
MacFile does?

No you can't use smaba for apple-talk. If you want to use Linux as a server for APPLE use netatalk.

Hmm. Thanks for the tip. I think there is a problem with my install of RedHat, because when I try to use make (on any package, not just netatalk) I get numerous errors, mostly revolving around header files missing.

I used rpm to install make off the RedHat CD, what else would I need to "make" netatalk?

I recompiled the kernel as described in Linux-Netaltalk-HOWTO. But there is a link to a rpm binary at this site, but I didn't try it.

I did. It was a broken link, unfortunately. If you know where else I could get the binaries, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks for your help so far.

Try ftp://contrib.redhat.com/libc6/i386/
there is a rpm-file. I just was there.

Thankyou! Excellent, it works (kind of). I just now need to figure out how to make it work so that I dont have to press the "Server IP address" button in chooser and type in the Linux box's IP address (ie, so that it appears in the list of machines when i click the AppleShare icon) Any ideas?
