I’m in the process of playing with a linux server box I setup @ home on a really old computer.
Since I’m not system administrator expert, I tend to always forget how I did things … So over the next couple of days/weeks, I’ll post here some info I don’t want to loose, or tips I found out while working with my box !
FYI, I installed an Ubuntu Server edition, because I did not have too much computing power, and my graphical card (SIS6215) seems really difficult to configure for X server !
So here we go with the first thing I don’t want to forget : Samba configuration for easy sharing with my other Windows based computers. I found this really nice HOWTO, that explains simply how to do it … The steps are well written, so I won’t bother making it better 😉
