    Dont know what you mean by "sharing folder"....

    You might need to enable fire sharing. Check the Apple Menu > System Preferences > Sharing to see if file sharing is enabled.

    You are on a G4 so you may be running os 10.4 Tiger. In this case you will need a program like SharePoints to enable file sharing on a specific folder.

    To Share you network connection, you must be running Tiger or higher. Then go to System Preferences>Sharing, select Internet Sharing, then select Airport from the drop-down, and Ethernet from the list below. Give it a few minutes for IPs to get distributed, then viola, it works*.

    *Working not guaranteed.

    I think it may be in another tab on that screen in Tiger.
