sharing files with the guest account
so in snow leopard, i know that when one logs out of the guest account all the files that they modified or created get deleted. However, i want to keep a certain file on the guest's desktop. i've tried making a shared folder through my user account, and i made sure that i checked the "allow guests to connect to shared folders." then when i log into the guest account, i can't find the folder. so is there any way to do this? or am i doing it wrong?

In your Users folder, there should be a folder called Shared. Put the file in there to share it with the other users on the computer. If that's what you did and it doesn't work, then it might just be that Apple has made the guest account without permission to even view files in that folder, but I doubt that is the case.
