hi,

your IP is configurate or not ?

To share local (printer / file ) => samba

what's your distro ?

some distro install package user-friendly without compiling if you hate white and white line on your screen

similar : apt-get(Debian..) / YaST2(SuSe) / emerge (Gentoo) / pkgtools (Slackware)

You can do probably everything you want with "NFS". The debian site has a good page on that. Goto documentation. You actually just have to do the work to read the stuff. "NFS" is really pretty easy. It is fairly foolproof. One word of warning, "NFS" drives that users can write to are "world writeable". For this reason it is better to keep /home on the users machine, and only use "read only" type data with the server.

distro = distribution

your ethernet can be configurate by your modem/router ? if you have router => configure your ethernet0 in dhcp client.
