Network File System (NFS) Server and Client Configuration in Debian

Posted 03-12-2007 at 07:34 AM by sridhar11

NFS was developed at a time when we weren’t able to share our drives like we are able to today - in the Windows
environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again, this

Linux and the nx6325 aka is there a distro that will work on this notebook???

How Windows Decided To Destroy My Linux Files

Posted 03-04-2007 at 04:22 PM by raldz

I have no problem with my external drive, been using it for months flawlessly, until I needed to use Windows. I need to access my files in the external drive using Windows, so I installed FS-Driver to access my files in the EXT3 file system.
