I was wondering if I could get some advice...

I'm interested in connection my NT box to a Linux one. Basically, all I /need/
to do is share harddrives, but would like more. What type of connection is
needed? Can I go NUL MODEM <-> NUL MODEM? Is there anyway to use TCP/IP in
this connection? Would I have to purchase a networking card (Ethernet) to
connect the two systems? And has anyone done this already? If so, I'd really
enjoy hearing about your experiences/frustrations/praises. I'd also like a
comment on the software needed to perform such a connection. I know that NT
has many networking types built-in, but I'm not sure how these relate to
Linux.

Thank you all very much. If I get many responses, I'll post a summary.

N!

I use Linux from my NT system all the time. I use an X Windows server
to run things like Mosaic and WinQVT/Net for telnet and rlogin access.
You would need a network for this, obviously, and if you wanted to
share drives, you would need some sort of NFS client/server for NT.
Chameleon makes one for NT, I hear. Works fine, but no real help from
the current NT tcp/ip (which is kinda lame). Linux has very good
networking, though, and the next version of NT is supposed to have
much better tcp/ip.
