Re: Stupid questions regarding installation of slimserver
- Hi Max,
I'm also a unix newbie, I got round this by pulling down the
PERL 'zip' file, extracting in windows and manually copying the files
to a mapped drive on the share, and then moving them to the
slimserver directory via telnet.
Hope this helps,
