Hi, In order to use samba with windows xp professional does my windows xp 
system need to be directly connected to the linux box and I am using 
dinamic ip addresses and want to be able to share files between windows xp 
professional and redhat9.  Also in windows xp I can't find where to tell 
windows what domain to use for the samba server, I have the group name set 
but I can't seam to figure out what else I need to do to get it working.  
I am using a 2wire home portal with sbcdsl.  bye
