My company is requiring me to now be able to access both from Linux ande

next to do.  I have read many documentation files online but none of them 
seem to make any sinse.  I can't really be specific what doesn't make sinse 
as really the whole ordeal doesn't.  Unfortunately, remember:  I'm coming 
from windows to Linux so, Linux to me still is almost a whole new language 
if you will.  I know a lotta this I should get, and franklyl I gotta admit, 
I'm a little scared of getting the rtfm thing with this msg.  Believe you me 
I have read the f***ing manual.  It makes no sinse to me.  It may as well be 
in greek.  Basicly here is what I'm trying to do precisely.  OK, if someone 
can tell me what do do, step by step, where to go in my pannels, what to 
type in a gnome-terminal etc. what file to edit, what lines to find in the 
file and either uncomment or change, just really outline very very detailed, 
I'd be one happy camper as this is gonna drive me mother flippin nuts!

Basicly, I have a 300 gig hard disc, external u s b by the way, which is 
connected currently to my Dell Inspiron laptop running xp home.  on this 
drive, which has the volume label of "Jukebox," there is a folder with about 
190 gigs of data.  The folder is called ftp.
Samba will do the job for you. In order to understand the differences 
between Linux and DOS/Windows, I suggest that you read

and to learn what you have to do with Samba, have a look at

Good luck!
