Hello, i am very new to ubuntu and i need some help.
i have a small wired network with homeplugs in my house. I have a macbook, xp laptop, NAS and now an old PC with ubuntu 11.10 on it.
I want to be able to access my ubuntu PC from my xp laptop (maybe even the mac) so i can set it running simple tasks. i use remote access on windows machines for work and i would like to do this at home so i can hide the main PC away somewhere.
Any tips? i think a program called samba might be the key but i can't find any simple guides.
