    Okay, I was right-clicking on the drives. I'll play around with that more.

    I honestly don't think Win 2000 likes SAMBA. :-\

    From earlier post
    A hint though, it's right-mouse click on the drive and choose sharing.
    Doesn't exist. It's not there. This is 2000, remember.

    So, when you choose "Sharing", you will see a window with tabs for "General, Tools, Hardware, Sharing". At the Sharing area, you will see that your drive - whatever letter is - proceed by a "$" sign. That means in Windows, it's hidden ( but the smart Engineers decided to leave those default to your drive letter such as C and D but how hard it's to guess that??? ). If you clicked on "New Share", it will give you a dialog box with options like ShareName; Comment;User Limit and Permission. You need to properly set that up. If you are new to this, just do a world writable and allow guess log in.
    The layout in 2000 is totally different. There isn't a way to share it that I'm seeing. Besides, none of the references that I've looked into mention this, so I personally think you're day dreaming.

    Get a WinNT administrator book from some old book shops or library or something. Those fundamentals still the same with Win2K and WinNT.
    2000 is different than NT. You should know that. 2000 is a different animal than NT (better).

    Nevermind, Ol' Goughmezz figured it out. Guess what? I had to enable "netbios over TCP/IP" and disable ZA (which I've done before.

    Compunuts, thanks for the help! This is truley a ground breaking moment for me! I set up my first server ever--and it was 8) Linux 8)!

    I was referring to 2000 also. And 2000 is not so much different with NT. It was just putting things into different places.

    Anyway, my Win2K install is "Version 5.0 (Build 2195: Service Pack 2" so you may have different version OR that you can't just see the sharing menu there since you were day dreaming ... :P

    It had nothing to do with a share from what I can see, and that's 20/15 vision. 8)

    And that's when someone had access to your router, your Winder box is all wide open to everybody.

    Sharing is where you control who you gave access to what. You can specify who can log in with administrator rights, who can log in with only read/write or who can log in with only read permissions and all those stuff ....

    Well, as long as you got that working, that's all it's. You will learn how to secure it later on ...

    Securing is definately something I'm interested in. That's part of the reason why I wouldn't move away from Windows right now. Even though nothing is full proof, it helps having ZA and NAT.
