Hi all,

Odd request for networking via USB - is it possible to make files available (read only) from my Ubuntu box via USB? I guess I want my Ubuntu machine to look like a USB mass storage device?

Background - my DVD player can read .avi files from a USB key/thumbdrive. Rather than transfer files individually I'd like to connect the DVD player and Ubuntu box via USB and have the DVD player see the files stored on the Ubuntu box. Obviously this is a read-only one-way transfer.
