    Hello everyone,

    I want to turn a G4 running OS 10.3 into a file server and print server. How can I EASILY do this without spending much $$.

    Thanks
    EJB

    Go to System Preferences > Sharing. There are some things you can use such as File Sharing, Printer Sharing, FTP, etc. Check it out.

    We found having a separate drive to the boot drive helped a lot with file sharing.

    So our G4 server has a 40gb 'Boot & Apps' drive and a 250gb file drive.
    There's nothing in the Users folder ('cept an admin account & a bunch of empty folders).

    Setting that drive up with Sharepoints was a doddle...
