I have 3 win2k machines and 1 redhat 8.0 machine and i want to make the linux box give disk space to the win2k machines. Like 3 users that use win2k (bob, ted, and fred) have a folder on the linux box and only the owner can access their folder. each folder with a max space of 2 gb. also i was wondering where the win2k machines would go to see there folder on linux.

Your solution to this problem is a piece of software on the Linux box called Samba, that creates shares that appear on the network in the same way as windows shares.

The max space limitation is a seperate problem using the linux quota system which needs to be configured for the file system concerned:
