anyone? i've been doing some reading and it seems like if i want to share this drive from this computer and password protect it, then im going to need to switch from a workgroup to a domain, which i am not opposed to doing, but would prefer to avoid. i have from my reading gathered it would be a complicated process and i dont quite understand domains all the way yet....
SO! if anyone has a simpler idea than switching from workgroup to domain in my household and setting up a tree structure please offer them!
