The KiSS 1600 is a CD/DVD player which plugs into a TV set and has a
WiFi and wired ethernet NIC, so you can hang it on your LAN. Linksys
supply a piece of file-sharing software called PC-LINK which runs under
Win & MAC. On my boxes, I run Fedora 6 on one, and CentOS 5 on the
other, so I'm looking for an equivalent to PC-LINK for Linux.
I have seen reference elsewhere to a daemon called "kissd" which seems
to do just the job, but it appears to be a dead project.
