Here is my setup/delima/frustration.
I have a P21.8Ghz, 512MB, ehternet PC installed with VL latests stable version. Attached to this PC is a 500GB External USB drive, which shows up. Also installed is a HP multi printer which is installed and work fine. My intention is to set it up as a file/print server for my network.
Windows Vista laptop- Wileless(work)
WindowsXP/Linux Mint dual boot laptop- Wireless
Linux Mint Desktop- Ethernet
Vector Linux PC- ethernet
I need all clients to be able to see the server(clients not a concern), it shares (printer and external backup drive), and use them. I understand the permissions side of things.
Q: What need I install on the Vector server to make this happen? (Samba, Cups, etc??)
Q: Is there a site or HOWTO that details this step by step? ( I am looking at the Samba site, but is there anything Vector Specific??)
THANK YOU to any and all that can help me out here. I am desperately trying not to make it a Win2K Server, ..as I dislike MSFT with a passion.
