    Hi all!

    Well this is my problem. I have a Power Mac G4 and it has 4 hard drives in it and I'm tring to access them over a network from a windows pc. Does anyone know how to do that. All I can access is my home folder on the main hard drive of the G4.

    Help :)

    Try putting Aliases of the hard drives you can't see in your Home folder.

    Also, make sure that the permissions are set right.

    I tried that but windows thinks the aliases are files instead of shortcuts... :(

    How are the drives formatted?

    What are the permissions/ownership settings for those drives?

    Are you the only Windows user on the network that will need access to these drives? Are there other Windows users you want to lock out?
