    I'm stuck - I setup a workgroup and I've got two apples 9.1 and a Windows XP pc. I've got a LinkSys WRT54G router, and am just STUCK. I can't get see the apples on the windows network, and just don't know where to go from here. Any advice?

    They all have TCP setup? Are they all getting an IP from the router?

    Is upgrading to Mac OS X an option? OS X integrates much more easily into a Windows network.

    If not, a software program called Dave is probably what you will need.

    OS X does this natively, so if you can upgrade, I would recommend going that route.
