I have just purchased a 17 inch iMac and, thanks to it being smart, have set it up for the internet. HOwever, I am having trouble connecting to my home network (file sharing, printing, etc). I think I have got close, as I have typed in the smb://ipaddress/name, and it came up with a box asking for the workgroupname, username, and password. It autofilled the worgroup and domain fields, but asks for the password. Where, on a PC, would I find the password. I do not remember creating one, and cannot find one on my home PC or laptop. I am a newbie to the mac family, so any help wouildd be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks.

QUOTE Thanks
