Really? Do you suggest Samba because it works with the Windows
machines? Should I use it when connecting to other Debian or Fedora
Also, as there is no router involved, how would the the "other"
machine connect to my machine? Will I need to install a DHCP server?
Can I assign a name to my laptop, so that the other machine could just
connect to that name?
Thanks! I have been googling this all morning and I cannot believe
that not many people have been in this situation before, it seems so
