I’m sorry if this isn’t the right place to ask this question, but I’m hoping someone here can help.
I’ve got two computers and I want to set up both to dual boot Windoze and Ubuntu 5.10. I just ordered ADSL service from my local phone company (I’ve been on a dial up until now) and they are sending me a Westell router / ADSL modem to install. One of the big reasons I continue to use Linux (even though most of the apps I use are Windoze) is for it’s great security and virus protection while using the internet.
What I want to set up is this (highest priority):
a. Both computers can access the internet, but -only- if they are running Ubuntu. I’m told the Westell router/ADSL modem supports up to 4 network connections, so hardware wise I should be able to do this.
b. File sharing under Windoze through the router, but -no- internet access under Windoze. I don’t know Windoze all that well, does anyone know if I can do this?
I’d also like to be able to (lower priority):
c. File share while both systems are running Ubuntu (I don’t know how to set this up yet).
d. File share while one system runs Windoze and the other Ubuntu (I’ve started to look at “Samba”, but haven’t tried it yet).
Any help or advice you can offer is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
