      hi, I moved to NZ a couple of years ago, and occasionally pick up this mag in shops here or on visits to UK. The tutorial in issue 115 on building a file & print server was great. I decided to go for a second-hand atom-itx-based PC to build this, as the problem I could see with an old netbook/laptop is that you are limited to external USB drives, rather than an internal SATA/RAID option, or SATA/RAID external array. Also, I needed something for fiddling with a few other things.

      The tutorial seems to miss a step between step 10 & 11.

      sudo apt-get install nfs-common

      While the server is covered, it is necessary to do this to access the share on the client.

      The other problem is that the text in the tutorial terminal screenshots is too small for me to read easily.

      But thanks, I have been putting off this project because of the cost of running an old PC all the time – and gave me the idea of using a cheap 1-2 year-old dual-core atom mini-PC.
