It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Samba is your friend

My computers at home run Unix of some flavour. My better halves computer does not, it's an old Dell notebook running Windows 98.

Without running Samba on the Unix boxen, the Windows machine would be cut off from the printer, and backup via CD-R. This would be bad, and would be a serious impediment to my gradual conversion of all my computers to Debian Linux.

Anyhow Samba is now correctly configured, and files are again crossing the switch and domestic IT harmony is restored.

Eventually I'll have to upgrade the notebook, but I think that getting some form of Mac will be the best path to Unix utopia. I'll then have the old Dell, and try and put Debian on that for myself.
