I eventually got it to work by changing the sharing settings on the Asus
Eee PC, to not require a password, then it worked. (I had set up a
username of user on the Ubuntu PC, as that is the name used on the Asus,
with the same password, although I do not know why it did not work.)
Thanks for all the suggestions, I will have to look at NFS and SSH - I
have heard of these but never learnt them. Sometimes I find it easier
just to do things the old way I am used to, i.e. the Windows way. I am
not a fan of Windows nor Microsoft, but using it for so long makes some
Linux things still seem too alien.
I will have to get my best Dalek onto it!
