I've installed OS X on one of the computers in my small home network, and find that in order to share files with the other computers they must have File Sharing over TCP/IP enabled. That's not been a problem with my iMac, but on the PB the option to turn on TCP/IP sharing is not available. In fact, it's not available in the 9.1 partition on the G4 where I installed X, but that is less significant to me. Anyway, any suggestion about what to do about enabling the TCP/IP option? Thanks!

Make sure the "ShareWay IP Personal Bgnd" extension is present and loaded in the extensions folder and you must be running OS 9 or higher for this to be available. If the extension is not on those machine get it from a machine that has it or extract it from the Apple System Software CD using TomeViewer.
