    The cornfields
    So I'm looking to build a PC (gasp!!) and I don't need to justify why because I love my 2 Macs and I have no intention of getting rid of them (although the resale value of my MacPro always tempts me). My question is: If I build a PC, can I install Boot Camp 3.0 drivers from Snow Leopard on it and then use my PC to gain read access from my Mac Hard Drives on my home network?

    Thanks, any info appreciated. :)

    As you want to access your Mac HDDs via network, there is no need to install any drivers for Windows to be able to read HFS+ (Mac OS Extended) volumes, as the network connection enables you to read and write (if you have the rights/permissions to do so) to those HDDs.
    Look into "How to connect Windows (version) and Mac OS X", as there are dozens, if not more guides for this around somewhere.
