I'd suggest you check out netatalk (in Synaptic) for AppleTalk file
sharing. You may be able to simply install the package, activate it
and log-in to your user account (I don't know how to start it mind
you... on a Fedora/RedHat based system you use service and/or the
redhat network manager and/or WebMin to do so... in Ubuntu you could
probably use WebMin to turn it on and have it activated at start-up
all the time).

To login to your server: command-K in the Finder, afp (I think)...
afp://IPADDYOFYOURSERVER. then enter your account name and password.

In YDL I merely installed netatalk, turned it on and made sure it
booted at startup and I've got AppleTalk services (no prefs file
settings required changing).
