I'm using a cable modem to connect and a standard little 4-port linksys router. I have 3 machines, an old SGI indy, a big ass dual gig freebsd setup and a win2000 workstation. I'd like to share a couple of folders on my freebsd machine with the windows machine I have but I can't get samba to start up because my hostname is incorrect. I don't think it will ever be correct due to my use of a router that is assuming the role of an older computer of mine whose network card I nolonger have.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to by pass all of this.
