    Hey everyone,

    so I wanted to make one of my Tiger machines into some kind of hub or server for files. I could resort to doing backups, but that would be sort of annoying... I use up to four computers as my main machines, so it would be best to have one machine that contains the important stuff.

    I have noticed, though, that Tiger doesn't have the option to share a specific folder. Starting with Leopard, you could choose to, for example, to share your 'Documents' or 'Applications' in addition to normal file sharing. I found out about that Sharepoints preference pane (I believe that's the name), but I am not familiar with the interface.

    Is there a native way to do this? If not, anyone know how I can share my, for example, 'Documents' folder so I can connect to it from other computers in the house? This is a Sawtooth with the latest Tiger on it.
