How can I share my Linux (RedHat) directories with Macintosh users, making it work over tcp-ip or Appletalk?

Hi pogo
 
yes you can share them.
You can use samba (a Linux Lanmanager-Server implementation) and a Lanmanager-Client implementation for the mac.
informations can be found at:
http://samba.anu.edu.au/samba/docs/faq/sambafaq-3.html#ss3.1 

Maybe you have a Netware client (2.x 3.x and 4.x Bindery not DNS) for the mac then you could use the MARS Netware Emulator see:

http://www.SerNet.DE/vl/linux-lan/

You also can add the appletalk feature to Linux with netatalk
a protocolsuite for mac<->linux connectivity.
see:
http://www.umich.edu/~rsug/netatalk/

there is also a package called CAP see:
http://ycmi.med.yale.edu/topics/CAP.html

a good idea is to visit:
