OK, Folder Sharing was a no-brainer thanks to the fine tutorial "Sharing and Permissions". Sharing and Permissions
A potentially helpful addition to this tutorial might be to address the assignment of "User name and password". I have no need to do so, since I will be the only one using these computers. (see snippet)
If there already is a tutorial on this, please disregard my suggestion.
Note: I have been through several tutorials and nowhere else on the net have I ever seen procedures laid out so clearly. Thanks.
Now lest I lose my mind, can someone please tell me how to share entire partitions
, so that I do not have to "share" folder by folder by folder ...?
To be perfectly honest, I really miss NT 4.0. Networking and file sharing was just: assign an IP address to each computer, a subnet mask, and a default gateway. Anyway, that was my lament for the day.
