    newbie network. notebook server to desktop client.

    i'm trying to set up my laptop as server for a couple of reasons.
    Let me give some specs. first.
    Toshiba Satellite running SuSE 9.2 pro
    connected wirelessly to linksys router for internet (Atheros card).
    connected via cat5 to desktop (Toshiba ethernet card)

    Homemade desktop running SuSE 9.1 pro
    not connected to the internet, connected to notebook via cat5 (3Com
    ethernet card).

    first goal:
    configure laptop to provide internet to desktop for downloads.

    second goal:
    configure NFS or SAMBA I guess, (which ever is best for this) to allow notebook to access /home and /MyMusic on desktop and to allow desktop to access /home and /windows on laptop.

    please be as specific as you can stand to be, i'm am really new at this. i've only ever configured a router and computers to internet before. (things like "open file.config in kwrite and add 'some_configuration' to ...." would be helpfull). sorry i'm being so detailed but i've had some really lame answers from other forums recently.

    Just a word of caution using Laptops as servers. I've seen a small web farm using them (yes, it's true) and there were some problems.

    They thought they could save rack space using them, but they couldn't close the screens all the way down because they would go to sleep. From time to time the hard disks would hibernate, even when open, especially after an operating system reinstallation.

    For home use it may be OK, but do a little research on the power saving features. I'm not very familiar with Linux on laptops, but I thought I'd toss in my 2 cents.
