Hi Liam,

As with all things Free and Open Source, you have a lot of choices...

Do you stick with Samba between machines (as there are extensions in Samba
for a Samba client talking to a Samba server). Do you switch to the Fuse
module SSHFS between all your machines, automounting them only when you need
to using another Fuse module aFuse? Or, do you use the venerable NFS?

My personal preference is to use SSHFS.

Hey, I have 2 computers Running Ubuntu 9.04 (soon to be 9.10) Thing is,
ones a laptop, and the others a netbook running UNR. They're currently
connected to a XP server via Samba, But I'd like to set up a Linux
network between the laptop and the netbook, with the Laptop as the client.

How would I go about this, as I know nothing of Ubuntu networking.

Many thanks;
