using jaunty as a nas - want to connect macs
Hello. What I want to do is set up Ubuntu 9.04 AMD64 as a file server. I have a MacBook. I have Jaunty installed on the machine I want to use as the server. I don't need anything special. It'll be a JBOD NAS. It'd be nice (but not essential) if XP machines could also be served up from the Ubuntu NAS.
From my Mac I can easily see & write to XP & Vista partitions. I'm struggling to see partitions in Linux tho'.
I get the feeling that I should be using NFS to achieve my goal (but perhaps I should be using Samba or something else).
I've checked around teh interwebs but I can't find a guide I can understand.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.
Ubuntu 12.04: E8200 // P35 // 4GB // HD4850
OS X 10.7.x: iMac 12,2; MacBook 5,2
