[ubuntu] Htpc

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I want to access my ubuntu HTPC portable hard drive with my windows 7 laptop, so I can watch the movies on my HTPC around the house. I am very new to ubuntu and to networking, is there a simple step by step explanation on how to do this? or should I just buy a new router that can connect to a hard drive? Thank you for you help (HowTos)
