Newbie Linux/Windows Problems

I have a file shared with samba but I do not know how to access it with my windows machine. The ip address does not work, how can I find out what my linux machines name is?

It won't have a name unless you run winbindd, I think.

Did you try '\\ip_address\share'? Like \\192.168.0.2\public?

Twey: bash: winbindd: command not found
Quella: Neither of those worked.

Here are the settings:

You need to use system-config-services to start winbindd.
Quella's advice should be sound. Remember that ip_address is the IP address, and share is the name of the share.

Twey I turned on winbind, though what is the command? I tried typing winbind and it says: bash: winbindd: command not found

Also \\192.168.1.103\shared still doesnt work. I am sorry I am giving you so much trouble, I am still new to linux.

The command would be /sbin/service winbind start.

I did not find the config in the "start" menu, though I did a search and found the samba config file. It says to look at the help file for assistance, but there is no such file. Do any of you know what to change in order to give my machine a name?

I am having (i guess) the same problem. But I have network and not internet. Someone recomended me to start two services but I can remember what. Does anyone have an idea? I am able to ping anywhere on my network but nowhere out. Also i have a windowsXP box with the name of "server". I can ping the IP but not the name server.
Any help?

I would have made a new topic but theese two seemed pretty related to me so I just added here.
