ok thanks to macrumors - i have now set up a great home network between my peeeecees and my new 17" PB. Thanks to ya guys i was able to setup a mp3 server using my dell, and have every other comp stream audio over. now heres a question that may stump ya lets say i decide to take my powerbook to school. is there anyway to still access my home network - ie. my dell thats on the network i have at home through my Powerbook while on my schools network? or lets say i take it somewhere else? is there anyway to access files that are on my home network remotley? and to do it without any program where ill have to dish out dinero for?
