There are a thousand+ ways. Did you have something particular in mind? For a simple Linux-Linux connection, NFS is probabaly easiest, and one line in your /etc/export can control the majority of your access. (Webmin and similar can edit these in an easy to use format.) You can script things as necessary, as well.

For scripting, just use:
#! /bin/bash
(whatever commands to follow)

Then, give that script the appropriate ownership, location and permissions, and let it run.

Ugh! Beaten back by my own knowledge, not fair...help, help...!!!

lol. We've all felt the way you do. This helped me a lot:

It's a little/lot out of date, and tends to be for the semi-admin types, but it's still useful.

The easiest way is using something like webmin, which runs "securely" on your browser. More than anything, it has links to <help>, which prevents the "dumb" errors.
