I want to get files off a Ubuntu box (10.04) and transfer them to a Mac Mini.
I am connecting the two directly with a piece of network cable (it's not a crossover, but I am told the Mini can handle this). The Ubuntu box has Samba installed (Samba appears in the Synaptic Package Manager when I search for it). The Ubuntu box has no means of getting on the Internet so I can't download other packages.
When I create a shared folder in Ubuntu it doesn't show up in Mac OS. But the Ubuntu box appears in the 'Shared' section in Mac Finder.
