Problem is, I don't know how I'm going to be able to get to the internet, or get the files from the *nix environment back to the windows environment.
I've got sygate, which would work, but it's installed on the wrong machine, as it needs to act as a server on the box that is going to host the application...and that would be the windows box.
Do I a) switch the sygate app to the other box, and go at it,
or b) is there another way to share files between linux and winders?
Thanks all. By the end of this, I'm going to feel like a networking genius. (just kidding, at least I won't feel like an amatuer anymore.)
For transferring between partitions on a dual boot, most Linux distros will read and write quite happily to your windows partition, it looks like just another directory in your file system. I think Mandrake does this automatically, but you may need to set it up yourself (it's simple enough though)
sygate: I haven't a clue ;)
I do it the other way - the linux box connects to the net, and acts as the gateway for the windows boxes.
I'll have to loook into the reading/writing thing from *nix. I'm using Redhat Linux [redhat.com] so that's where I'm going to start looking.
I'll check out the samba thing, too. Thanks, SK.
