Can you be more specific? Is the Linux source (where the files are) on one PC and the XP system on another; and both systems/PCs are networked to each other?

I beleive SAMBA will allow a PC to access files on a Linux machine.

If there are two separate PCs involved and they're networked to each other... then there ought to be no need of any add-in software.. Simply allow each OS to access/see the other etc.. - and likely create appropriate accounts on each PC for the other to allow access to the other's drive an contents?

But until we know if the above is the case (2 separate PCs) we are whistling dixie and the rest?

linux/unix doesn't talk SMB unless a samba server is loaded.

Just being on the same wire will not allow linux and MS to talk.

Takk for that Wanderer; ny knowledge of Linux/unix is necessarily limited... Had presumed the usual considerations for windows/Mac (using ntfs) would apply...

One doth learn sumat useful every day...
