comment How can I update application?
They will do, maybe some of them not so well integrated into your desktop environment. Maybe there are differences with panels, window decorations etc. So maybe Rhythmbox won't be integrated into the volume icon, but it will run. The easiest is to just try it out. Use a live CD (or even better USB stick if that works) and spend half an hour testing your common tasks. You can even install programs in your live system (although they are gone if you reboot of course, you can't save anything on a Live CD).

@Maxime Unfortunately I don't remember, I'd be interested too. I think I didn't like the way it deals with file permissions. On this German page it says that all UIDs have to be unique on the whole network. That sounds quite problematic to me. Refer also to this this question.

comment Which to use NFS or Samba?
Thanks for your explainations! Some more questions: why not using FTP? I heard that the UIDs have to be unique... That sounds really complicated for me. How does NFS deal with file permissions?

SSH will be significantly slower than SMB or other protocols. If want to use Gigabit ethernet to backup a large harddisc you don't want to use SSH.

A sorry, that was not clear. There are two passwords. You can change the system password by using the command line tool passwd and the Sambapassword by using the command line tool smbpasswd. I think unless you change them they should be the same, but who knows... You will have to enter your Samba password if you want to connect through smb://...

Samba passwords and system passwords do not match necessarily. Try out smbpasswd!

I just wanted to edit my answer and to add that my answer probably won't help you. The error message you mentioned before already doesn't fit with what I thought was the problem. Can you access the share from the desktop computer? Use smb://127.0.0.1/ to try it out.

comment Ubuntu 10.10 Network not working
Uh ok. Sorry, I thought this would help. It seems as if there is a difficult network problem which is not easy to solve without having access to the system. So unfortunately I don't have any better ideas than to give you more tips and hints how you could find the source for your problem on your own. I'll expand my answere.

Did you try the answere I posted? I suppose you didn't get the correct IPv4 address through DHCP for some reason and there is no IPv6 router.
