Connecting to another computer


Can some one please describe to me how to connect to my other machine on my 2 machine network (a gui method)?

Info:

Machine 1:
Mandrake 9.1 full install
running nfs, ssh, ftp, http servers

Machine 2:
Mac OSX 10.2.4

I know how to setup the Mac, but not the Linux box. I want to be able to mount either machines harddrive on the other machine, and access files/folders at will. I need to know the gui method (as I am learning Linux and am not to familiar with the shell commands). Both machines are networked as such: cable modem to firewalled router, machine 1& 2 are wired to the router, router is using DHCP. I have the router set up fine, and am able to ssh or ftp from/to both machines locally (the router is set up right, blocking all outside access, but allowing internal networking). I think I need to use LinNeighborhood to set it up, but don't know about mountpoints and such. So what do I need to set on the Linux machine to make this happen?

Thanks

Probably for MacOS you should use NFS. AFAIK there is no gui setup tool for this, but it's not very hard, look at /etc/exports and run the RPC portmapper daemon.

I piece of voodoo that NFS needs to work. Start it like this:

/etc/init.d/portmapper start
/etc/init.d/nfs start

that's what it is on my boxes anyway..... then just add the folders you want to export to /etc/exports, and if you want to connect to an NFS share, mount them with something like this in the fstab:

filehost:/home/mike /mnt/dan/psyche nfs user,rw,exec

ie:

machine:/path/to/export /mount/point nfs user,rw,exec
