Ive been using Ubuntu & Xubuntu for a while but now I'd like to get a comp running on ubuntu server. I'm still reading the guide but there's something i cant figure out about the domain. Say i just wanna have a NFS at home, i read from the guide that i must install the right packages but then i have to type this from the client:
sudo mount example.hostname.com:/ubuntu /local/ubuntu
does that mean that i have to pay for a domain? when i installed ubuntu server i left the domain blank, so what do i have to do now? cant i just type the name of the machine \\example or example:/ubuntu ?
