Hi there. I believe this would be the forum for this, but I beg you pardon if it isn't.
I recently ran into some complications that require me to reinstall Xubuntu, but I have files on my computer, with nowhere to go. I want to connect my computer to my router/modem with an ethernet cable, and transfer them across my local(home) network to another computer, so I can get them later after reinstalling.
I was directed towards something called Samba, but I don't really know what it is, or how to get it started.
So basically, can someone direct me towards a very user-friendly how-to thread/site, or explain to me here how to get started?
Also, if it makes a difference, I'm currently running off a startup disk, since I don't have access to an actual installation.
