I have a Linksys 160. I have installed it in a home
LAN with Windows98 and Linux RH PCs. I have performed
the "root" access hack (thanks), and I have installed
OpenSSH as per the kind documentation provided in the
docs section of the yahoo group. I am able to ssh from
my linux, and use WinSCP3 from the PC to talk to the
As I am new to setting up my own Linux/Windows LAN, I
have many questions I hope the experts here can help
On a stock Linksys unit, how is the disk formatted?
FAT32, ext3?, something else? Does this matter? Can

1) A Linux share, called Lin_share, that should only
be written to by the Linux machine.
a) Does that mean the Windows machine can not
b) Does that mean the Windows machine will be
*unable* to write to it?
2) A Windows share, called Win_share, that should
only be written to by the Windows machines
a) Does that mean that the Linux machine can
not read it?
b) Does that mean that the Linux machine will
be *unable* to write to it?
3) A Win/Linux share, called WinLin_share,
readable/writable by both Linux and Windows machines
a) Does this mean that it *must* be a samba
b) Can a file be "double-clicked" to execute?
I mean, if I am looking at the WinLin_share using my
Linux machine, can I double click on the file
document.pdf and have my Acrobat application fire up
and read the document? Presently, I get a samba
warning that says Linux app can't launch an app on a
samba share. Is something not config'd right?
Finally, what is the mount command for the Linux
machine to see the Lin_share share?
