    Help With Setting UP Network

    Hi guys

    I am new here sort of, I would like to set up my machine as a server for my kids on my wireless network, how would i do this? When I click on Network i get Could not display "network:///".
    Nautilus cannot handle "network" locations.

    Thanks

    I presume you're trying to set up a file server (as opposed to Internet/Connection sharing). The Server Guide might be helpful - Chapter 17 is on Samba. There are several other good How-To's on the forums, as well.
