I am new to linux and to ubuntu and would like to
have an ubuntu machine running as a server to
communicate with a windows xp machine, I have not
been able to do this because of network issues.
Just before I start I would like to say that I've
been reading about your screen casts which I think
are a really good initiative, would you consider
doing one for installing and setting up the ubuntu
server edition 6.06 to communicate with a windows
I ask this because I am really interested in setting
up a server environment but so far have not been
able to. Also if after watching the screencast I
get my server together then I will be able to spread
the word to other computer users at college who
might be able to benefit from using an ubuntu
machine and LAMP environment.
I have a few questions:
If you install ubuntu server edition 6.06 onto your
machine and it cannot recognize an ethernet device
or cannot set up DHCP does this mean that you will
not be able to network between another machine
because there is not a network capability - does
this mean that you will not be abale to ping another
If you have an inherited machine and you try to
install ubuntu server edition 6.06 does it normally
recognize the ethernet device and configure DHCP
automatically - if not why might this be?
If you experienced either of the problems above what
may be the problem?
Are there any regular meets that take place in
London/Brighton where people can talk about
practical problems and how to solve them?
Also would anyone be up for scheduling a chat
session to take place over a messaging programme
such as msn messenger to talk about the server
I read a couple of news letters ago that it was o.k.
to ask for help here - hope this still holds true.
