So I want to share an external drive to the rest of the network here. Unfortunately (as is usual in many situations) all of the other computers are Windows based. I created a "Sharing Only" account (using OS X 10.5) and gave it permission to access said drive. I'm not sure how to set it up so that other users can connect to me but only be able to access that drive instead of everything inside of my home folder which is what I believe happens if I just set up generic Samba sharing. Any ideas?

One last push!
QUOTE Thanks
