You might like to take a look at SAMBA.  This is capable of providing
"virtual" drives to the PC's, allowing applications to be executed from them.
It is a handy trip to perform when you run out of disk space on all your
machines except your Linux server :)

See ya

1. How to share one IP address with two servers (application server and web server)?

Hi!,

I don't think you can share one IP address with two different servers, but you
can do load balancing ?, is this what you want ?

See ya
