Aloha,I am in my first week with 9.10 after my two laptops running Windows XP crashed. I installed, made internet connections, and setup evolution mail accounts OK. I am now following instructions from stchman.com/share_NFS.hmtl called "share file using NFS in ubuntu". I have gotten to the point where i am to create mount points and i get the following when i enter "sudo mkdir /network/PC_2" in the terminal on PC #1 [toshiba].
john@toshiba:~$ sudo mkdir /network/PC_2
sudo: unable to resolve host toshiba
mkdir: cannot create directory `/network/PC_2': No such file or directory
I get the following when i enter "sudo mkdir /network/PC1" in the terminal on PC #2 [sony]
john@sony:-$ sudo mkdir /network/PC_1
[sudo] password for john:
mkdir: cannot create directory '/network/PC_1': No such file or directory
I have reviewed the newbie section and googled but i can't find what i need to do to correct my problem. i want to be able to share the files and a printer on both linux computers. I have the printer connected to PC #1.
PC #1 is a Toshiba Satellite P25-S670
PC #2 is a Sony VGN S-150
