    is it possible? I like having access to a remote server natively inside the os and it frustrates me that I would be forced to .mac

    gracias :)

    Depends how good you are with scripting and programming.

    for a nice feature like that, I wouldn't mind learning. I have friends that are much better than I that might be able to teach me had I the knowledge of direction.

    has nobody tried it before?

    check out the "not mac challenge" and see if it has any application for you

    I read some site, about someone installing a webdav on a mac-server? And using it to make his osx believe it was the .mac server. It was a whole lot of work. I read it months before I got a mac....

    Too bad, because I do not see the use of the .mac account, when I have my own webserver/rootservers...

    it seems like 'notmac' is dead in terms of leopard. I will download later when I can, but it doesn't look like there have been any updates lately.

    but thanks! I will look more into notmac as well as dotmac, a new up and coming.

    Yep, and the only thing I was interested in is the photo-gallery, which is the only think I didn't care about...

    too bad....
