i just got asked to set up a mac network with a w2k server.
unfortunatly i havn't touched macs since the apple 2e days.

the main thing i need to know is how to set up 'file and print sharing' so the cleints can store their files on the server and access the main printer.

Should be easy: it's USER-FRIENDLY and INTUITIVE.

Just like Windows.

hi tweak'e,

you'll need to make sure the server has the appletalk protocol installed. Go to add remove windows componants, and install 'Other network file and print services'

After that you'll have to follow your nose as I've only done Macs on NT4. I presume it will enable new options when creating a file share to incorporate Macs lame security.

You will only get the aditional options if you use the shares snapin under mmc.
