    Hi can anyone tell me how to share files between my macs? I did some homework on my MBP but need it on my MB.

    I usually email the files & reopen them on my MB, but can I network my macs? I looked in "Macintosh HD" & it only shows my iMac not my MB?

    Go into System preferences on all your macs and make sure file sharing is turned on. If you are in Leopard your other macs should appear in the sidebar and you can access them from there. If you are using Tiger you will need to click on the network button and then on the mac you want to connect to which will then mount on your desktop.

    This worked great...however how can I use mobileme iDisk to share?
    it only shows certain folders, I went into "get info" & checked "share" but it doesn't show up?
    I also tried, adding a folder named "test" into the folder named "public" seen below...it doesn't show up either.
