eeePC model: 4g non-surf (701)
Being new to Linux and only briefly using Ubuntu 8.04, I just got a Eee PC 701 SD and immediately removed WindBlows and installed Eeebuntu Standard 2.0 quite easily. It's a great OS and I've got everything working perfectly for my wife, including a webcam app that she "had to have"
Anyway, I have a basic home network with 4 Macs and they all can see each other and we can drag and drop files at will.
Question - How do I add the Eee to the mix?
My Macs don't even see it on the network. I don't usually share just one file, I mount the HD of the Mac needed on my Mac's Desktop and have full Admin access.
Is this possible on my Eee? Can it be bi-directional? (meaning access all files and folders on the Mac from the Eee and vice versa)

eeePC model: 1000H
Aurora version: Beta 4.0
Open synaptic and ensure you have samba installed. If not, install it.
When installed pop open a terminal and run:
sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
find the value for workgroup and change the entry to match your network.
Save the file and exit gedit.
In the terminal window type:
Now you should see the shares you have opened from your mac.
If you get any problems then try installing: system-config-samba
This will give you the samba administration application found in System->Administration->Samba. It is relatively straight forward to use and you can see the permissions being applied to shared folders.
