http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, Linux beginner here ... and loving it so far! Anyway, here's the plan: Run Apache on Ubuntu Server for use as a development server, not exposed to the internet (yet - it's tempting) and then share the web site directory using Samba so that I can edit the files 'in place' from a variety of client machines on my local network.

Now I mount the directory on any client using the user credentials ... so far, so g (Hardware)
