accessing disks on other networked computers

I have a small NOLUC** and would like, occasionally to access files on one of them. Seeing the files on the current machine's Windows partition is easy but not the files on other Linux boxes.

How do I set them up so tht they can get access to each other?

They all need either samba set up or nfs.

Perhaps you could get some limited success using a FTP server on the puppy machines. You could set up an anonymous account (plus other ftp accounts if you wish) and access these ftp folders from other pups using a FTP client.

The FTP server and client software is already built into puppies.
