How to get acces to files on CPU1 from CPU2?
I have a duo core machine which runs Mepis 11.
I have Mepis because it works and protects my wife from malware and viruses off the internet.
So I have one computer and two users.
Oft time she wants to use the machine when I do or visa versa.
I got an old dell machine from the dump with Windows XP. 1.7gz P4 I think.
It works but I don't want XP except for very specific things. XP is not very fast and it does have security risks I do not want.
I tried to partition the hd but I can't get any partition software to work - not in Windows (Partition Magic) or Linux (gparted). Maybe due to it being SCSI Harddrive?
So I can't put Mepis on the XP machine (would have just copied my files over via USB stick)
I can use puplinux off a CD but then realized the my files and things that I am working on are all on the Mepis machine and I am not sure the puplinux will work with my files.
I have dropbox but it's already getting full (and I have about 28 gigs or stuff
!) but I can use xmarks for bookmarks.
I thought a thin client would do well and just run it from the Dell and access my machine.
We have a common router as both access the router to get to the internet.
So I thought I would try my hand at LTSP with Mepis.
I can't get it to work!
Not great documentation out there either. Frustrating!
So any suggestions? Maybe Samba? But not sure how....
I use to have an Amiga 2000 and 1000 (still have both machines-2000 won't boot anymore-shame) and used a serial cable to run a stock car race game where two people could race against each other, both controlling their own cars, both being able to see from their own view point. Pretty cool for machines built in the late 80s!
