/etc/mgetty+sendfax/mgetty.config

try looking there for config

plus inittab does not exist anymore - I believe /etc/event.d/ replaced /etc/inittab

Re: Unable to network with Windows machine

Run terminal and enter this command

gksudo gedit /etc/hosts

and add computer ip address and name in hosts file. Save and exit.

Sample ip and name:

192.168.120.65 blablaPcName

Thats all. If that does not work you will have to edit the samba config file
