How do I Share Files and Folders?

  1. Hi,

    I have just set up Samba to create a shared drive between my laptop running Ubuntu v7.04 and my desktop running WinXP home SP2. This is great and I am really pleased that I've been able to make it work with the help of a really clear guide!

    The question I have now (and I am sure it is a simple one!) is this - how do I create links between files and folders on other drives on the XP machine and the shared drive and the same with files and folders on Ubuntu? So that I am not cutting and pasting everything to the shared drive.

    Will.

    Sorry,

    Was a little anxious and wanted reassurance before doing anything - however some basic web searches calmed my frayed nerves - it's been a busy day.

    it works just like Windows file sharing; you make the folder on XP shared.
    the samba config is then modified to include the newly shared XP folder.
