Step 1 stopped me dead in my tracks.
1. Prerequisites [...] Your Linux box should have an static ip-address.
My router (Linksys wrt54g) is not setup to provide static IP addresses.
So the methodology you suggest won't exactly work for me if it means changing the DHCP server setting to disable.
I guess I could take a deeper dive into the world of network setup. But first I'd like to know, is there absolutely no way to connect a PC running Linux Mint to an existing WORKGROUP when the PC's IP address is not static?
