Yes, thanks, that's the easy part. I've already got that -- I've been
running getty's across a null modem cable for some time. Beyond that,
several people recommended setting up PPP. No one indicated what I
should do once I set up PPP :( Anyway, reluctantly, I sallied forth.
Now I've got a PPP link between my laptop and desktop, so I would like
to run dselect, etc., accessing file systems on the desktop as if they
were local to the laptop -- I assume NFS is the thing. I will plow
forward into these uncharted waters now, but if anyone would care to
offer NFS advice, I'm all ears (or is it eyes?)...
