new to networking on macs
 
Hello

Not sure if this is the right forum for this or not but here is my issue. I am pretty new to macs. I purchased a macbook about a year ago but really just started using it a few months ago. I also purchased a mac mini and use it as a media pc on my TV using itunes and front row. Now I can access my library using my macbook thru the itunes sharing and thats all fine and good but I wanna also access shared drives. Being an old windows guy I knew how to set up networks and everything but I am having issues now with the macs. I wanna share the 2 external usb drives on my mac mini over the network so I can access them with my macbook and my windows pc. I have tiger 10.4.10 on both macs and windows xp pro on the PC (I will upgrade to vista one of these days but I hardly use it anymore). I also want to share the printer that is on the windows computer on both of the macs. So I guess the question is how do I set this all up? I am sure its really simple to do and being a switcher I have over thunk everything I tried to do on the macs and realized later how much easier they are to do on the macs. Thanks in advance for your help.

By default, External drives do not show up in the network. Download Sharepoints and set it up for your two external drives and then they will show up on the network.
