    Question Stupid Question
    After weeks of trying this and that, I've finally got it to where I can see both my Dells on the Mac under MSHOME (the workgroup name) in Network. Don't ask me how I got there, I don't know. And from experience I know how elusive this can be; I've been able to see at least one of the Dells before only to have it disappear suddenly. Also I can now see the Mac on both Dells, and sometimes that's only temporary too.

    My question is: on the Mac is there anything I can do to make sure this is a permanent thing?

    what i have done is put the mounted share in my startup so that it starts up everytime i turn on the iBook.

    In the past, I have noticed this, but sometimes you need to wait a minute. Or sometimes, I click in the Network window in Finder to get the other computers on the network to show up. I don't know if that does the trick, but for some reason, I'm paranoid that it does the trick.

    Still stupid here. What is a "mounted share" and where is it?

    How would I put it into my startup?

    Thanks for your answers. It gives me some leads.

    Hope you can answer my two new stupid questions.
