I have 3 computers on a home network. A windows XP desktop Ethernet
connected to a linksys wireless router, an Acer laptop WINXP
connected wirelessly to the linksys router and an Apple MacBook
connected wirelessly to the linksys router.

The Mac recognizes and shares info from the two WINXP's as I would
expect and had hoped.

The WINXP machines recognize and share with each other but fail to
pick up the Mac.

Any suggestions as to how I can get the WINXP machines to connect to
the Mac to share files etc?


Not possible, the Mac uses a totally different file system than
Windows uses. Mac's are smart, Windows is dumb and doesn't play well
with others.

Doable. The file system is taken care of by the host machine. Sharing files
is transparent.


Mac users are dumb, Windows users are smart and know what they are talking

Dumbest fucking bullshit you've spewed.
