I have the following hardware:
Desktop with 3 GB Hdd with RH7.1 installed
Laptop with win98 SE
1 ethernet hub
I hv been trying to setup a small network between the 2 machines for sometime now.. I currently dont hv any internet connection at home so all I am trying to establish is a small LAN ..
Configured the linux network config, setting the ip to 192.168.1.1, the workgroup name is set as "home".
Win98 has an ip 192.168.1.2 and is also located in the same workgroup "home".
How can i setup my network to start running? I am as yet not interested in setting up samba.. just pinging the 2 machines from each other wud be great for now!
