    While I wait for my cell phone to die so I can snag an iPhone...

    I was wondering if there's a not-too difficult way to access my Mac files (Snow Leopard) from my wife's Android phone (presumably by creating a WebDAV server)? I've quickly poked around the interwebs, and setting up the server on the Mac side doesn't look like it should be too hard, even without the separate server tools; but what about the Android side? Any thoughts? This was inspired by a friend who just installed the Server Pack onto Lion, and showed me how he can access his compy files from his iPhone as if the Mac is just a network drive connected to the iPhone.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions/input! :)



    **Also, if there's a better spot for this post, let me know. I thought the server/networking bunch might have the best answers. Note that I am on Snow Leopard, not SL Server.**
