comment Can't ping by hostname of CentOS running on VM from Windows, but can from Mac
Brian, thank you for your advice. I added a domain name in my router's DNS settings and can ping all of my home PCs using that domain name as a suffix.

Installing samba seems to have done the trick. I also took Brian's advice and explored some of the DNS settings of my router, adding a a domain name. I am able to ping varia from friend now. Thanks very much!

So, samba wasn't installed. I installed it via "yum install samba" and set my workgroup in smb.conf. I think that's progress but it hasn't yet solved my problem. Brian brings up a good point about my lack of a DNS server so I will try to resolve that first.

If I disable WINS, what do I use as an alternative?

comment Can't ping by hostname of CentOS running on VM from Windows, but can from Mac
This is on my home network and I do not have a domain controller (as far as I know). I have three WRT54G routers conntected to each other through the house. Only one of the routers has DHCP enabled as the other routers serve as wireless access points. Could there be a domain I don't know about?

comment Motherboard audio to analog (RCA red/white)
I was thinking of testing the audio connections to see what I get. There is a link in my question to the motherboard's technical specification document. There are both front-panel and SPDIF pinks on the motherboard.
