I'm not sure I understand what your situation is. Are you saying that
there are two LANs at your workplace that traffic is not routed between
and you want to know how to connect your box to both LANs and set up
some file sharing system (eg nfs, samba, webdav) to serve requests from
Or are you asking if you need to set up a second LAN dedicated to
transporting this file? I couldn't see why, so perhaps you could explain
more. Also, I doubt that you really need a separate partition for
storing the file, although it's not necessarily a bad idea.
Regardless, I think Mike's suggestions or subversion are a better fit
with the problem as you've expressed it.
