My pc run Redhat 9.0, and connect to a pc Window XP via LAN.
I want in Window XP, I can see Redhat hostname, for exsample, I can run -> start -> \\<linux_hostname>, or ping <linux_hostname>.
In samba config file, I config workgroup in Redhat is same to Window XP, is "workgroup", and I use samba user, samba password for login samba protocol.
I don't know Window Xp know linux hostname via which config file: /etc/hosts, /etc/samba/lmhosts, or via hostname command, or others...
Note: I don't config DNS for Redhat.
