    I am having trouble accessing files with my brothers MBP (running latest v of leopard) from an external HD (FAT32 format) plugged into my iMac (also running latest leopard.) I have tried logging in as myself on the MBP, but all that appears is my main hard disk and my home folder.

    It's very important that I have access to this drive!
    :eek:

    Does "File Sharing" have a check in it in the Sharing applet in System Preferences? Furthermore, have you added the hard drive as a shared folder under the "Shared Folders:" heading? You also need to set the permissions to your liking in the rightmost pane.
