This is now the end of my first week of being the proud owner of a Powerbook G4 1.25 GHz as my first Mac and it's incredible. So far I have found it fairly easy to navigate as compared to a PC and haven't had much trouble but there are still a few more advanced tasks that I have been trying to figure out on my own and have finally decided to ask for some help:
1. Is it possible to use my Mac to view shared folders on an XP PC? (I already know how to use Samba so please don't point me to any Samba tutorials. I want to be able to view the shared folders on my XP PC without having to type in the name or anything like that. Much the same way you view network computers and shared folders on an XP PC.) I have tried searching for some software that might enable me to do this as well, but haven't found anything yet.
2. I have an HP Photosmart 7350 printer connected to my XP PC and want to know how to wirelessly print from my Powerbook. I have already installed the drivers for it and I can print with the printer physically connected to my Powerbook, but when I try to do it while its connected to my XP PC I get an error message or it just prints some gibberish and starts acting weird and spitting up paper.
3. Can I use my Powerbook to burn multi-session CD's or DVD-RW's? Is there any software I can use to do this?
Sorry for the long post but I wanted to make sure that I had clear accurate questions and I look forward to your responses.
