this is worse than choosing toothpaste....
my problem is this...
i have 2 computers... one is female.. the other is male...
they will ping each other <ie... recognize the other is there>
but they won't talk to each other...
no matter how much i try to persuade them

all i get is....

i've printed so much stuff off that i thought would help that i'm almost out of ink....
i just want to make a network...
thanks for reading this far and enjoy the sunshine...
<something i'm suspecting people that get lost in linux don't see much of... ? haha>
