SFU might be just for you on the Microsoft side : Services for Unix. You can find explanations and software on the microsoft download site. On the Linux side you can have a lot too . visit a free linux site like linux.org . There are explanations and software . By to work together if you mean access each other ...primarily you need tcp/ip and correct netmask and gateway settings. Define the role of each ( tasks they will share ) on the crossplatform you will make . That is specifically necessary .

What would it take exactly? And, is it possible for these two different systems to be used in an office setting? Are there any special programs that are necessary to share files and printers?

Currently, it is a client/server network. 1 Windows 2000 server providing print and file services and 7 Windows 2000 Pro systems (two have printers attached). Oh, and the networking protocol is NetBEUI.

Now it's a question with more data . First foxy angel , start using TCP/IP . I would go further and say replace NETBUI with TCP/IP . No big effort to do so ! Since your visualization of your overall system is two separate servers with clients logging separately on them , you are right to reject the previous answer . For file sharing there is samba server and samba client and for printer sharing there is a lot of special software and ways . Since you are using the Microsoft as the file and printer sharing , use Linux for other roles : Firewall and/or Router . If you are looking for a AD structure type setting then you need other configuration and special programmes on each server . But IP first !!!

What do u mean by the AD structure type setting?? And please explain what the configurations and programs are for it. I already asked this, and still waiting for a reply...
You have helped me somewhat, and if acceptable, u will be awarded well.

Please explain what you meant by the AD structure type setting...and u will be awarded an even greater amount if acceptable.
Oh, and I was going to upgrade to TCP/IP anyway...NetBEUI is so obsolete its pathetic...
