  1. I've got it working fairly well. Thank all of you for your help:-)
  2. Ok Swat works as it should, but i need help with the configuring. My only demand is that anyone with the right username and password can access my share folder, and only my share folder (/home/kim/Share/). They also has to be able to write to this folder and copy files from it, even dough they don't have an own user account on my computer... Thanks!
  3. What do you mean with MCC, System, Services??? Thanks for all the replys
  4. ok. I have installed swat... now, how do I use it???
  5. I made a samba account with the command 'smbpasswd -a <user>'. swat is not familiar with me... also i could'ent connect with localhost:901. In my case this would be 'bebe:901'. I made my samba password for my account, named 'kim', so with my own password i can write to any folder i usually can write to without being root, but I wont my father and brother to be able to copy from and to my computer, but only be able to access the share folder. So I created a 'guest account' with filesharing rights (this account has no home folder... only for file sharing), but even dough they log in as guest from the other computers they cant write to my harddisc. I avoided this problem by making the guest home folder '/home/kim/Share/', and that works perfectly... But this is not the proper way to do it, so I am still open to sugestions. Thanks
  6. I have taken a look in the smb.conf file, but I'm not shure what to do... As for the other things you wrote about, polemicz, i did not understand. Please post more detailed... Thanks for the reply :-)
  7. I'm using Mandriva 10.2. I have made a 'share' folder in my home directory. The intention with this folder is to be able to transfer data from one computer to an other over our LAN conection. The other computers (one Win XP and one Mepis) can lokate and view my content, but they are not allowed to write to my drive... I can tranfer my data to the others and retrive date from their computers from my computer, but they can'y transfer anything to me. In 'share' folder properties I have changed the settings so that owner, group and others can view and modify content... So I have no idea why they cant write to my disk. My share folder uses the samba server. I would also like to mention that my home directory is on an other partition. Thank you
  8. Ok thanks everyone. Im done with this. I've installed Mandriva over again. So no all my mistakes is removed...
  9. bash-3.00$ bash --login bash-3.00$ As you see it did not change my prompt... How do you make tweak on PS1? jboy told me to do this, but I was greek to me... I dont know what tty 1 is... so that I have not tried. I want to thank everyone who has tried to help me by replying. THANK YOU
  10. Im using mandriva 10.2 limited edition. I have the win5lin pro 6.0.9, and the serial... im going to install win xp
  11. well i don't have bashrc in my home directory... how do i make one?
  12. I did what you sead, but it did not help me much. Her a copy of what the console sead and whats in the file # /etc/bashrc # System wide functions and aliases # Environment stuff goes in /etc/profile # by default, we want this to get set. # Even for non-interactive, non-login shells. if [ "`id -gn`" = "`id -un`" -a `id -u` -gt 99 ]; then umask 002 else umask 022 fi # are we an interactive shell? if [ "$PS1" ]; then case $TERM in xterm*) PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033]0;${USER}@${HOSTNAME}: ${PWD}\007"' ;; *) ;; esac [ "$PS1" = "\\s-\\v\\\$ " ] && PS1="[\u@\h \W]\\$ " if [ -z "$loginsh" ]; then # We're not a login shell for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh; do if [ -x $i ]; then . $i fi done fi fi [CODE]unset loginsh bash-3.00$ export PS1='[\u@\h \W]\$ > the next time I enter i get the 'bash-3.00$' again... as for the .bash.rc in the home directory. I have no such file... If it was should be in the tmp directory, well then it's gone... Thanks for the help so far, dough
  13. I tried what you sead, jboy. this was my response... bash-3.00$ set | grep PS1 PS1='\s-\v\$ '
  14. I'm going to install win4lin. My main reason is autocad 2006. Im a linux newbie dough (3 weeks). I would like to have a step 4 step list of things to do to make it work, from the download to the run. If anyone can do this for me, I will be very happy. Thanks
  15. It must have been my fault because it worked when i first installed mandriva 10.2 limited edition
