Network Sharing With Windows and Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 3, 2005
I have two computers, one linux (slack 10.2) and one windows (xp sp2), on the same internal network. They are setup so that the windows machine has two partitions (c: and d: ), as does the linux box (/ and /home).
The linux machine is always on. The windows machine is only on when in use.
I would like the windows machine to mount the /home directory of the linux machine, so that an icon automatically appears on the windows desktop, and files can be dropped on this icon to be copied over, and the icon can be double clicked, and the contents of the linux machine can be explored using windows explorer. Hopefully this would be quite similar to mounting a network drive between windows machines.
I would also like the linux machine to mount the windows drive, and create an icon on the desktop when the windows machine comes online. Is this possible?
So the questions :
1. how to share the /home partition to windows?
2. how to get it to mount with an icon on the windows destop
KVM Virtio Network Drivers with Windows Server 2003 R2 on Ubuntu 13.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 21, 2014
I have a Windows Server 2003 R2 (x64) virtual machine running on an Ubuntu 13.10 KVM host that will not allow me to install the redhat-provided drivers. Every time I try to install the virtio driver for the network I get the error "The parameter is incorrect."
I have tried re-downloading the driver iso, and modifying the .inf file (changing the 1001 to 1000 and back per suggestions). Nothing has yielded any positive results.
Chkinf reports "InfFile->getSection() called with invalid section name: RedHat." every time.
Installing Ubuntu 12.04 with Windows installer
location: linux.com - date: September 23, 2012
I recently discovered a different way to install Ubuntu desktops through the windows Ubuntu installer. It worked for the latest version... no need for iso disk or usb stick. Of course you must have Windows installed on your computer... below is the link.
Some may have already heard about this, but as usual I am late in learning.

[SOLVED] For dual booting Ubuntu 10.04 with Windows 7, which partition process to use? Page 2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 8, 2010
Ok I ran into a problem now, I updated Ubuntu now and the updated kernel has removed the EasyBCD settings for dual booting and now once the system boots up, a cursor flashes in the top right hand corner and then boots straight into Ubuntu without showing any options for booting into Ubuntu or Windows!
Has this problem being fixed yet or are there any solutions to retrieve the original EasyBCD bootloading setup?

Grub does not appear when installing ubuntu 12.10 with windows 8
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 4, 2013
I've tried to install Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit alongside windows 8, but haven't been able to even see the Grub, Windows 8 starts automatically.
I've done all the basic steps told, using boot-repair twice, even disabling Secureboot, but still nothing.
Anyway, this is the URL I've been given after the second boot-repair attempt: http://paste.ubuntu.com/5678141/ .
Is someone able to help me? : (
Problem dual booting Ubuntu 12.04 with windows 8 64 bit.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 30, 2013
A few days ago I tried to dual boot ubuntu with my windows 8 64 bit. It worked fine for 2 days and then Ubuntu didnt boot anymore and I had a lot of BSOD's in Windows 8(DPG_Wathcdog_Violation, Memory Mangement(also had memtest errors over 15000 in 5 mins), critical_service_failed).
Im still afraid my ubuntu install screwed my windows installation. Do I need to worry for future problems(hardware,software)?
So I did a system restore and removed Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit from my PC.
But I do want to use ubuntu so what did I do wrong? Or is it just my PC that cant handle ubuntu.

Ubuntu SSH Server with Windows 2008 Server Kerberos Authentication
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2012
So I have a Ubuntu 11.10 machine with openssh. It is on the same network as a Windows 2008 Server (domain controller). What I want to be able to do, is configure the ubuntu machine to accept kerberos authentication from the Windows 2008 server, instead of using for example an SSH key or Password. I have read several articles, but I just need someone to explain it to me in more detail. I have figured how to go into sshd_config and set KerberosAuthentication to yes, but i basically need to know how to route the windows server to the ubuntu box so it knows which kerberos to authenticate with.
