You have to install Mac Services, restart. after you did this you have allready a standard mcshare. Details you can configure with winfile Manager. there you have aditional Mac Settings.

in addition to werner's comments

a good reference:
Integrating Your Macintosh With Windows 95/98 and Windows Nt Environments, see link on my NT integration page:

http://is-it-true.org/nt/books/btips21.shtml

We have always supported a subset of macs with mac services. There are problems, in particular, with password synch - our NT domains require pw change every 30 days. The mac group has a lot of trouble with this task for some reason.

After installing Services for Macintosh, you need to configure it. If SFM is already installed go to the Network control panel. Select "Services for Macintosh" and click Properties. On the General tab select a zone.

If no zones are available you need to create one. Go to the Routing tab, click on "Enable Routing" and then "Use this router to seed the network." Enter a range. Click on "Add..." and create a zone name. Click apply. Go back to the general tab and make sure there is a zone selected then click OK. Restart. And there you have it.....

Hope this helps...

I forgot to add that there must be at least one partition that is NTSF in order to create a Mac share point.

Also, to create a Mac volume, go to the File Manager (not Windows Explorer) and select "Create Volume" from the "Mac File" menu. Enter all applicable items and a share should have been made.

From the Mac, you must install the UAM by first going the the Chooser and then clicking on AppleShare. Then find your server in your zone, log in as Guest, mount the UMA volume, then drag the folder labeled "AppleShare Folder" to the System folder on your Macs. Drag the UMA volume to the trash can.

Log back into the server but this time click on "Registered user." That should be it. If you need more help, feel free to email.
