Hello

I have a problem that I would like to get some help with. I recently downloaded Ubuntu 5.04 and would like to install it on a machine that will become hopefully my file server. I typed server when the bootscreen came up and then it installed. The problem is after the install I have no clue what to do next. There's no X session so I have to completely relie on the shell. The machine that I want to access my server with is running windows XP 64 bit edition and Suse linux 9.2 pro. So can some one please help me thanks.

I guess that would all depend on what you want it to do. For a good reference on how and what to install go to http://ubuntuguide.org/.
Is there no X session cause you want it that way or do you have a problem with X?

We need to know what it is you want help with. Questions like "How do I install samba on Ubuntu?" are easy to answer, and dont require too much time. Open ended questions like that one ^^ wont get many replies because nobody really wants to talk you step by step through learning the shell, and then setting up an entire server.

Okay well I'm alot better off now. I have installed the Ubuntu Server 5.04 and installed samba and install ssh. There is no graphical desktop and I want to use it as a file server. The computer that has the files I want to move over runs Windows XP 64 bit edition. It's Ip is 192.168.0.101 and the server is 192.168.0.100. Now I can ask a proper question. How do I set up the Ubuntu server so Windows can use it.

Thanks Docmur

With Ubuntu:
Get the Packages:
You've already did:
sudo apt-get install samba
Make sure you did:
sudo apt-get install smbfs

There are 2 ways that I know of to set up shares

The easiest way to setup shares if you don't like command prompt is with webmin
you can find the instructions for setting webmin up here:
http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php...ighlight=webmin

Webmin manages a ton of other server features also.

The other route is going into the /etc/samba/smb.conf
and editing the file to create your users and shares there.
once again you can go to the guide and it shows you how to edit the config file and create users
