i have a network setup running Jaguar on the g4 and im also running xp on an athlon

what i want to do is when i log in from the PC.. i can access the entire contents of the hard drive on the g4

right now when i log in.. all i can access is the folders under the user account.

how can i share the entire hard drive over to the pc?

You need to configure a new samba share, any UNIX gurus here may be able to help with doing it manually, but I'd recomend installing webmin (http://www.webmin.com/), it makes samba config (as well as loads of other stuff) as easy as anything.

theres a nice little app called SharePoints that does exactly this for you

Thank you very much
that little app works wonders!

now my only problem is that i have an old pc running windows 95 and it wants to login to the g4 using a user name of IPC$ for some reason .. it wont let me set the login name..

and i tried making an account on the g4.. of IPC$ and set a password

but the pc still cant login using the password i set.

any suggestions
