Thread: file and printer sharing openSUSE 11.1 and Windows XP SP3

    Default file and printer sharing openSUSE 11.1 and Windows XP SP3

    just wondering if anyone can tell me how to setup my openSUSE 11.1 shares to be viewable on my Windows XP machine and vice versa...

    at the moment both machines connect to the net through a wireless router/modem

    i did manage to file share between an Ubuntu setup with Windows XP previously

    now i'm moving into openSUSE and i'm after pointer or guick guides on setting this file shares up

    XP:
    ip: 10.1.1.4
    netmask: 255.0.0.0
    gateway: 10.1.1.1

    openSUSE 11.1:
    ip: 10.1.1.3
    netmask: 255.0.0.0
    gateway: 10.1.1.1

    samba seems to be installed when looking through program packages installed... i just don't know where to go from here in enabling it...
