    From my PC, i can connect to my home drive on my mac, In windows explorer I type \\powerbook\tobio then it asks for my password and I'm in.

    BUT...

    can anyone tell me how I can map a drive to the external external hard drive on my mac? it's called WD USB 2 and I can't figure it out :-(

    What if you just connect to " \\powerbook\" ?

    If that doesn't work, I'd guess that Windows won't support it. But try connecting to the \\powerbook\ and see if it lists shares.

    Using Mac OS X Client, only your homedir is shared for SMB.

    I think SharePoints could help you out here.
