"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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:

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:

a good idea is to visit:
