I'm considering purchasing a N1200 for our home network of Windows XP and Linux clients. The N1200 User Guide shows how to map map drives for Win and Mac clients, but has no instructions on how to set up Linux clients.
What kind of Linux u are using ? If you haven't got GUI, you must mount the folder by yourself. I think all consumer grade NAS works similar. Some folks post the NFS module at this forum, so you can use Samba or NFS servers of the N1200.
