Building heterogeneous home or small office networks with Mac OS X and Linux

“You can find plenty of information online about building heterogeneous networks involving Windows, but relatively little about connecting Macs with Linux PCs in a home or small office network. Mac OS X’s Unix base, however, means there are plenty of good options for networking a Mac with a Linux PC, despite the relative lack of documentation,” Kris Shaffer writes for NewsForge.

Shaffer covers the following:
• Printer sharing
• File sharing
• NFS setup
• SSH setup

It’s all in one place with clear directions in the full article at NewsForge here.
