    networking 2 imac G3's with mandriva 10.1


    Hello, my buddy wants me to network his 2 imac G3's (ones a 350, ones a 400) with his mandriva pc, he wants file and printer/internet sharing ... he has a D-Link DI-604 router with a 4port switch...how would i go about networking the 3? would the router work for this? or would i have to install 2 nics in the linux box? thanks in advance for all your help

    Cool

    you just need to use the router. i assume that DHCP is enabled on the router? if so, pretty much plug and play. is the router connected to dsl/cable modem? if so, the router will handle internet sharing. you will just need to configure printer sharing...which box has the printer connected to it?

    Try researching the topic then ask questions once you encounter problems with networking. Your questions are too vague to render a reply shorter than a mini text book.

    So there in one Mandriva PC and two iMacs, one running OS9 and the other running Ubuntu?

    My suggestion is creating a NFS share on the mandriva box. You'll need to edit /etc/exports for this. It is simple. Then from ubuntu you should open the terminal and issue

    sudo mount -t nfs serveripaddress:/nfs/share /mount/point

    I don't know what you could use in OS 9 to mount a NFS share, however Google may know.

    If there is a possibility of running OSX there is a sweet little program called NFS Manager that will automount shares

    For printers, I'm not too sure of a solution. Some types of CUPS configuration maybe?

    no...at the moment just one imac thats running ubuntu, the other one is due in weds, either going with os 10.2 jaguar or gentoo in it ... and most likely its just going to be hooked to the network, no sharing needed on that one
