Recommended server setup
I'm setting up a 500Mhz 512MB RAM box as server which will not have a screen attached to it.
It shall work as an NFS and SMB server for a couple of XP boxes (with SAMBA) and be an "X server" for a couple of older laptops. By this I mean that these PC's should run their applications and get their login screen from the server, but still be running their own local UNIX for SWAP and such...
How do I go about to set this up on the server? I assume that I will have to install the full KDE on the server even though it won't be using X itself (no screen attached) and that it still has to go to run level 5 for X in order for the clients to be able to login?
Also - how do I set the clients up to maximize this performance? They have 128MB RAM and 10GB disks, and when they run SuSE 9.2 natively, it's so slow it's like pulling teeth. Thus I wanted to help them out by running X and all applications on the server with 512MB RAM instead. (only one laptop will be connected at a time)
