I will admit right off that Linux is still just a little bit like voodoo to me, so please be patient.
Here’s the basic situation:
Two computers, Albus and M5.
I boot Albus from SystemRescueCD with network support configured correctly (i.e., I can ping M5 and all is well). Note: I am pinging it by its IP address, 192.168.8.2, because the name is not resolving.
M5 runs Ubuntu 7.10, and so as I understand it I should be able to log in to it from another Linux machine on the same network, with proper ID and password.
What’s the procedure for doing that? I’ve tried every variation I can think of with username and machine name and I’ve gotten nowhere.
Thanks in advance!
