    Hey Guys,

    Thanx for Mac Rumors! I have found the website very helpful. :apple:

    Anyways, I talked so highly of my Mac that a buddy of mine finally
    bought a used dual G4 desktop just to check them out. :D

    We plugged it into his Linksys router and I was able to network
    it to his PC hard drive in about 5 minutes. I know I did it through
    menus and System Preferences windows. I remember a drop
    down menu on a system window, I pulled it down, chose a name
    (which I think corresponded to the name of his computer), it
    prompted me for a uname/pass, and then we could see his whole
    hard drive (which is shared).

    A couple weeks later he had a bad Windows crash. I helped him
    recover but I can't figure out or find out how I originally made his
    HD viewable to the Mac. I know I did not use Go->Connect to
    Server. Windows Sharing is turned on. The HD on the PC is

    I don't get it! It was so easy the first time! Please help! :confused:
