Ubuntu Linux Server

Spent all morning building a new server. What a pain. All I want to do is use it for a file server. The GUI that normally loads with the workstation builds is not present in the server build. So I had to figure out how to do that among several other things. Next I need to figure out how to get a shared folder both visible and accessible on my XP machine and on the Ubuntu Server. Linux is not my fortay. I do have some UNIX experience with a shell account but it was too many years ago to count.

More to learn about Samba!

Samba was the only Server software I actually installed. I didn't think I would ever use any of the LAMP stuff but I can always install it later if I change my plans.

I still had a few minutes leftover to cut off the plastic fence panels in one direction. They are all the same height as I need for the fence now. Each one has to have both ends cut off so they fit in between my fence posts evenly. unfortunately the posts aren't totally evenly spaced...just close visually.
