    Yeah, I don't think I've seen that work with FC either. I haven't
    tried to get it working, though, so I don't know what is going on.
    Like you said, specifying the machine name works.

    Open up the firewall settings (Start->Settings->Control Panel->Windows
    Firewall), go to the Exceptions tab and check the "File and Printer
    Sharing" check box. I think that should get you going. You can click
    on the "Edit..." button with that line checked to which ports this

    No problem.

    P.S. Many people don't like it when someone sends HTML mail to the
    list. Please try to send plain text mail in the future

    I have even turned the firewall off John, that is what bothers me. File and
    Print sharing are on always for the other machines and it still gives the
    same results whether firewall is on or off. Thanks for the ideas though.

    And thats what I get sending html mail to my mother then to the list. it
    should be off now

    You completely miss the point. A machine can have more than one network
    card. Which card's MAC would one use?

    There was a missing initcall. Get the latest 2.6.9 errata
    kernel for FC2, and use that instead.

    Hi,
      Is there any difference between the kernel source in
    FC2(version 2.6.5-1.358) and the kernel source
    (version 2.6.5)obtained from kernel.org?
      Can I also download a 2.6.5 (or higher)version
    kernel source from kernel.org to replace the FC2's
    origianl kernel source and compile the new downloaded
    kernel source to yield a vmlinuz and run it as FC2's
    kernel without any conflict?
      Thank you.

    As FC2 originally use the 2.6.5 kernel, If I directly
    use the latest 2.6.9 kernel in FC2, Will it cause some
    conflict? (i.e. Can I safely update the original 2.6.5
    kernel to the latest 2.6.9 kernel in FC2 without any
    problem).
    Thank you.

    Ciao to all.
    A little question (!?)
    My FC2 (home.bear.net) have "lo" and "eth0" interfeaces.
    My network ip is 192.168.0.0;
    Broadcast is 192.168.0.255;
    IP of eth0 is 192.168.0.1.
    The question:
    on my /etc/hosts I must to have:
    127.0.0.1 loalhost.localdomain ....
    192.168.0.1 home.bear.net ...              ?????
    If yes, why have only "127.0.0.1 loalhost.localdomain ...."   ?
    Ping with localhost, home.bear.net, 1192.168.0.1 answer me well.
    Thanks to any help me!

    Hi there,
    just installed Fedora Core3, but now I have an issue booting WinXP.
    WinXP is installed on hda5, so my grub.conf reads:
    ---------------------------------------------
    title WinXP
    rootnoverify (hd0,4)
    chainloader +1
    ---------------------------------------------
    however, upon trying to boot WinXP, I get the output
    Booting 'WinXP'
    rootnoverify (hd0,4)
    chainloader +1
    and then it hangs.
    Has anyone experienced this before or came across a solution for this.
    I have re-installed Fedora, however this did not change anything.
    This is the output of fdisk -l

    If you chown or chmod a symlink, you're applying the changes to the file
    the link points to, not to the link itself.
    One way of achieving the user-unconfigurability would be to rebuild the
    xscreensaver package with a patch that removed the code that read
    ~/.xscreensaver. Long-winded but it would work.

    Thanks for the link. I'll look it up later when I get some I-net access.

    Well.. did it solve your problems then???
    Would make sense, but I can't understand why cron would just complain
    and get on with life??

    I drilled some holes on the side of the casing and added in 2 fans. One
    sucking and one blowing into the casing.
    It won't be such a problem since it's a P133 w128mb which I intend
    on making as a firewall/apache/squid box.
