I have Leopard installed on my computer and my girlfriends. For some reason my shared computers and drives do not show up in my finder sidebar. I have all shared options checked in finder preferences. How can I set up finder to show these drives? Can I also get these drives to show up on my desktop?

I think there are still some bugs to be ironed out. I connected my iBook using airport and the first time it showed up in the sidebar. The next time however, I had to click in the Menubar "Go > Network" and it showed there. As for showing on the desktop, go to Finder preferences, and there's an option there.

I agree there are a few bugs to get worked out. It seems like I have to restart once a day and I'm now getting kernal panic once in awhile.
