After doing a search this specific question has never been asked, i did look
Ok here is the scenerio.
Dell laptop (dual boot XP, FC2)
Compaq Laptop (XP)
Gateway laptop (XP)
Compaq laptop (FC2)
Gateway Laptop (FC2)
I am trying to weigh out Samba vs using NFS and the Unix Service for XP (it does exist). I know Samba will let me share files fairly easily between the XP and Linux machines but what about my Linux to Linux boxes, i know i can FTP but is there a GUI method to browse your Linux boxes ? Also i know from my XP boxes there is a graphical method just through network neighborhood but when i go to the network icon in Linux it always shows blank under Windows Network !
The goal is to be able to just use a GUI between any machine to drag files with users that are not Linux Experts, including me. I would say i could just use a Hybrid of the two but that seems like alot of unnecessary processes running on those Linux boxes.
