    Ok, I turned on windows sharing under the preferences. For instance how would I share just the Itunes Music folder and nothing else for just one Windows user? In Windows Xp sharing a single folder is pretty simple. I for the life of me cannot figure this one out in Panther.

    its not that simple coz u will have to modify smb.conf....it wd be in /etc/smb.....so if you are comfortable using terminal..then add the following to smb.conf


    [mp3]
    comment = "MP3s"
    path = /Users/your_name/music/itunes
    browseable = yes
    guest ok = no
    read only = no
    create mask = 644
    directory mask = 755

    cheers

    The app Sharepoints can give you a gui to share folders.

    You can also put items in your Public folder. This allows users to browse items you've made public without giving them access to anything else. This is your default "shared" folder.
