How can I share a root filesystem using Windows?
I've had 2 ideas on how to approach this:
- using nfs-server and a ext3 driver
- compress the entire 18gb into one big file using cramfs and share that.
Is there a better way? The first approach I doubt will work because
even Paragons ext3 driver doesn't do permissions that well. The last
approach seems messy and even then I'm not sure it will work because
I'm not sure how cramfs and similar compressed filesystems uncompress.
To add some detail about the `thin`client mounting the exported root filesystem:
- will be running off a 64mb flash card with Mozilla so with little
space will be left.
- 320mb RAM
- small and silent
I could have 3 computers; Windows, linux server and a thinclient but I
don't want to introduce another computer into the house, trying to be
effiecient on electric.
I've sent a similar question to the ltsp to see what they say.
