how do you do it on an older Imac running 10.2.8

Also I am wondering how do I make it so i can see the files on my windows machines?

Thanks People!

I assume by silent you mean the boot-up-all-is-well-bong? Just set the volume to mute before shutting down and your next boot will be bong-free. Alternatively just pop some head-phones into the relevant socket.

As for the windows files, just share something on the windows machine, then hop into finder and click the network icon, or use Command-K to initiate the "Connect to..." window.

Thanks for the response. I was able to figure the sharing out.

Just as a heads up to people with MacBook Pro's, even if you have headphones plugged in, the bootup sound WILL play through the internal speakers. The only way to silence it on those is to mute the sound before a shutdown.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
