Hi everyone,
I am trying to setup a file server for a small office but have hit a couple of hurdles, is there a step by step guide how to setup a network for windows and mac computers to use it? I had setup a share etc but once I restarted the server all the files disappeared which I had in the home folder? Also when I setup users how can I use passwords that I select as everytime I set one it encrypts it and uses that instead of my one?

Any help would be much appricated

You probably want a samba server then. I used Webmin (http://www.webmin.com) to configure the one I am using. Webmin is a web-based interface that makes configuring different servers rather easy.

Any way, there are a few good tutorials on how to set up Samba; here (http://www.ghacks.net/2009/09/04/set-up-your-new-ubuntu-server-as-a-samba-server/)is one of them.
