How do I setup a portable Fileserver that hooks up to Macs and WinPCs via ethernet ?
Well, that's the big question.
Samba and netatalk is my guess, but I'm not a regular Linux user. That's the reason I'm asking for pointers and suggestions here.
My basic use for this is to carry a sound library around with me, and when hooking up to either a Macintosh or Windwos(or Linux) computer via ethernet, I'd like to access my library easily and hopefull almost
automatically. People seem to ave achieved this already, but I can't find any detailed HowTos or logs of this.
Target hardware would be some vanilla PC that can take a 60-80 gig IDE drive, so it'll probably be a Pentium or later computer with a Promise IDE ATA100 controller and a little Realtek 8139 ethernet card. I still have
a nice little Mystique gfx card too.
How do I put this together with Linux ? Any distribution suggestions ?
