Hi-- A friend recently gave me an old P2-450 that he wasn't using, and I am going to put Linux on it (my other system runs Win2K). I've used linux a bit and am a bit beyond a newbie, but hardly an expert.
Anyway, what I want to do with this is run the Linux computer all the time and then set it up to automatically grab certain folders from the Windows machine to back them up. I'm sure there is a simple way to do this; can anyone tell me how? I imagine there is some sort of FTP command that can do it, or maybe a CRON job?
I've never explored CRON before.
Anyway, I haven't put Linux on the p450 yet, but I am currently downloading Knoppix as I want to give it a try.
Thanks for any and all help.
