Hello i've spent a very entertaining couple of days trying to connect my two new linux machines (home network). I've got my internet sharing up and running but i'm not sure what i have to do in order to share folders across the network. Having searched the net most people want to network linux and windows, and I can't seem to find anything that helps.
How do I network using the dhcp protocol, what servers do i need to run on host and client, and do i need to do anything with /etc/hosts /etc/sysconfig/network? Also mandrake asks me if i went to add zeroconf name - i'm not really sure what this is and if i need it.
I've picked up a few hints about networking in linux, but on the whole i haven't a clue what i'm doing
Be grateful if anyone could give me some pointers. So far my linux experience is going well it would be a shame to spoil it.
