Bolton,

You hardly need anything if you have installed the servers in Linux, which is ftpd, httpd or apache server, nfs server and so on. To setup a server is easy, you just have to connect your computer to your network which consist of a few things,

one - ethernet card to connect it to the network
two - a working routing, more help? try  man route  on the linux prompt
three - checking your local configs on both ends. in /etc
fourth - check if you can telnet or ftp in your linux box from the network


note: all linux comes with the servers pre installed if you have it on cd. So just do a   ps -aux|more and find the pids of the servers


email me if you have more questions on this matter, im glad to help you up.

What sort of server?
What sort of client?
Does he mean he wants a web server or a HTTP server,
Win 95 won't talk NFS! Is SAMBA more relevant?
