Yes, X is running. I edited the Samba config file to have a workgroup of
MSHOME, same as my XP system, but nothing has shown up in my XP network
neighorhood. I figure it won't unless I share something on the Linux box?
All of this is so automated from Windows that it seems like I'm a dummy
trying to get it running under Linux, but you have to admit that there is
no way a newbie can sit down in 30 minutes and figure it out on Linux. The
entire system assumes that the user is a programmer and has weeks of free
time to figure simple things out. However, I love Linux and I do use it
quite often for other purposes.
All I need is a direct Ethernet cross-over cable connection, no shared
internet, nothing else.
