NEWBIE - Redhat v9 + Win2k + TCP/IP connectivity question
Date: Tue, 29 Jul 2003 21:41:53 +0000 (UTC)
I've finally decided to take my first tentative steps away from the Window$
platform. I am about to embark on installing Redhat Linux Ver 9 on a dual
processor box. My current setup is three networked PCs - all running
Window$. I have internet connectivity through a local broadband service and
my PC with internet access is behind a firewall (McAFee).
This are my problems:
1). I have some Micro$oft documents (Word & Excel) that I want to move onto
the Linux box (to use Open Office to read these). - I don't know how o
transfer the docs over to the Linux box
2). I don't know how I can obtain internet access from the Linux box,
sharing the same ADSL modem accross the network.
Look forward to your feedback.
