Question Workstation question...


First off, I must say thanks for running such a community and providing noobs like myself a place to gather needed info.

Now on with my question...

While at school I noticed that we had several workstations that ran off of a central server. I am trying to replicate this at home. I have a box already loaded with RedHat 8.0 and it will act as my server(i pretty much installed everything on it).

Now how do I go about setting up another box to act as a workstation that utilizes my other box as its means of storage/processing/yada yada?

thanks in advance...

Then you want to maybe look into NIS and NFS...

this is true...

what I need to know is can I make my second box basically a dummy terminal that uses the server to launch app's, compilers, development tools, etc...

or is this non-standard? I am not sure how it is done and wanted some insight on the subject before I perform my second install...
