Serving files from linux share on IIS 6.0

dHi, I'm trying to setup my IIS server (6.0) to serve files from a linux share. As I'm pretty unfamiliar with linux I ask the community for any input on this.

I've had problems even having IIS server serve content from another windows machine share, this could be a prolem with our domain. The iis server is not on the domain.

As I want to move more towards open source and linux I think having a simple file server is a good way to start.

I took the linux distro chooser at and it recommends OpenSuse/Mandriva/Ubuntu. Any oppinions on that would be welcome aswell.


You could use Samba to crate a Windows share on Linux.

Is there a way to call ruby1.9 without loading rubygems?

ruby shell rubygems ruby-1.9

So ruby 1.9 is really nice in that it'll automatically require rubygems, and hence when you call require 'somegem' without first requiring rubygems it'll work, and that's generally awesome.
