I have a simple problem... but it seems overwhelming for me.
I have a router, a desktop that runs XP, a laptop that runs Ubuntu 10.10.
I want to make a home network with these devices I have.
I have already managed to connect two computers, both running xp, through a cross-over cable. that's all the experience I have. any help is greatly appreciated.
after I build my network, my intention is to make use of Synergy software (it makes possible using two computers at the same time, with a single mouse and keybord).
