Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 WS

Hi All,

The company that I'm working for runs a Windows network with Windows 2003/2000 servers.  A user needs to have RedHat on his PC, I've installed it and can ping other PCs & logon the web but i can't view any network shares.  How can i set this up? This is the first time I've install Linux so i need help!

Also can anyone recommend some good Anti-Virus software for redhat?

Many Thanks

I think the OP wants to see shares served by Windows boxes. For that try...
Applications -> File Browser ->  Computer ->  Network ->  Click on your Server

I think the OP wants to protect his Red Hat box from virus attacks,
Linux does not have viruses like Windows does. But you probably want to be sure you have the
latest patches.  For that read the manual page. Right click on the desktop and select "Open Terminal"
From there type "man up2date"

Linux doenst have virus like windows have, but when u play with samba, win virus are alike to come in linux share, it will not affect the linux system, but surely would affect the user who uses the share....so a AV is always encouraged even on a Linux Box ;-) ..smbclient is needed for viewing win shares, GUI calls the same thing for viewing windows shares
