Talking to DOS...
Posted on 1999-12-29
Okay, here's the story (and I mean story):
I have a 'p90 with win95' and an 'alpha233 with winNT and now RH linux'. Of course, with the 2 DOS systems it was easy to share files and communicate. Well, having just put RH linux 6.0 on the alpha (still have the DOS paritition(s), too) I was wondering how to do some of things I used to with NT:
1. With NT, all I did was stick TCP/IP and NetBUI on there and mess with a couple things and presto, I could grab files, nice and easy. How do I do that with linux?
2. Since I do have DOS partitions on the alpha, is there a way I can at least share files locally? I tried mounting a drive (2 drives on the alpha) that's entirely DOS and it didn't seem to work. (I've been hesitant to try again since it takes a while to format).
