I have 3 Linux boxes in my house, 1 Ubuntu 8.10, 1 Arch Linux running KDE 4.2 and 1 Pardus 2008.1.
I have a 1TB drive in my Ubuntu box which I have got my music collection on. This drive is mounted permanently in /media/sda2 and has an icon on my Ubuntu desktop.
Now my daughter's PC is the Pardus box and my son's is the Arch Linux box and they want to be able to play the music on sda2 through the network.
I have tried setting up the share through NFS, but alas I cannot install nfs-common on the Arch or Pardus boxes as I cannot find nfs-common.
I have tried the Samba route, but I cannot share the drive because of access issues, which I assume is to do with my user permissions.
I don't want anything fancy, just read permissions. I have posted this in the Arch and Ubuntu forums to see if they can shed some light as well.
Cheers in advance
