Network Configuration after installation

I have installed Lunix on a PC just a week back with network install. Now I wish to connect it to a network LAN and use the resources of other computers on the network. Is there some way out. The network consists of machines with Win 98 installed. Please tell me if there is any way other than reinstallation? If there isn't, please tell me the right way

You don't need to re-install, that's for the Windoze world !

Configure your kernel for the TCP/IP protocol and the network card you use. Run "netcfg" to setup your network options.

If you wan't to "talk" with Windoze machines you need to install SAMBA and configure that, which requires a little hacking. See the docs for further information.

BTW: Which dist. are you running ?

I am running Red Hat 6.1 and I am completely a novice to Linux. I am sure that I want to doze off WinDoze after I am a little confident on Linux. Any further comments or recommended material might be helpful.
