    i have a network setup running Jaguar on the g4 and im also running xp on an athlon

    what i want to do is when i log in from the PC.. i can access the entire contents of the hard drive on the g4

    right now when i log in.. all i can access is the folders under the user account.

    how can i share the entire hard drive over to the pc?

    You need to configure a new samba share, any UNIX gurus here may be able to help with doing it manually, but I'd recomend installing webmin, it makes samba config (as well as loads of other stuff) as easy as anything.

    Thank you very much
    that little app works wonders!

    now my only problem is that i have an old pc running windows 95 and it wants to login to the g4 using a user name of IPC$ for some reason .. it wont let me set the login name..

    and i tried making an account on the g4.. of IPC$ and set a password

    but the pc still cant login using the password i set.

    any suggestions
