July 10th, 2009, 09:07 AM
I have an ftp server running on my windows 7 box but would like to add a file server to an ubuntu9.04 box..I am installing ubuntu as we speak but dont know how to set it up.I have a name for my ip address and am running Servu on Windows 7.
I also want to add my ubuntu box to my network.It's connected to my router but was unsure about how to add it.If someone could help me out that would be awesome.I would also like to be able to have access to my external hdd thru my linux box.

Any help would be appreciatd.
