I need to get a Power PC G3, OS version 9.2.1 logged into a Windows 2000 domain.

I know absoultely nothing about mac's, and need instructions for a novice.

While i was writing this, i found out they have a second one running OS version 9.2.2.

Any help would be appreaciated.

9.2.2 isnt going to make a difference in how you connect. The fact is that OS 9 doesnt include support for windows connections. Your options are to buy Dave from thursby systems to get that functionality, or to enable mac network support in windows. The latter option rarely works since windows mac support is somewhat broken.

Didn't you say Windows 2000 domain?

You must have a server somewhere... you can install Other Network File and Print Services / File and Print services for Macintosh etc (add/remove windows components)

You then have to play around with Appletalk routing which I think is in the "Routing and Remote Access panel", long time ago I did it, but on the Mac you play about with IP numbers and Appletalk zones.  It's not hard, but treat the mac as a seperate thing, don't expect too much from "logon to the domain" etc., then logoff user etc as in Windows, treat them to logon & connect to shared windows 2000 server folders and it will be fine.  Our macs are fine on our win2k domain.  Dave is a good solution for some purposes but not needed.

Dave is much better than installing the Microsoft appletalk stuff on the server. The MS Appletalk stuff sucks, and Dave is very good at what it does. Spend the money on Dave, and it will be much less of a headache in the long run.

I use Dave on our network its fine but I wish I had found Mac Administrator from High Resolution first as it offers quite a bit more including desktop security, Mac Os 9s desktop security in the form of Multiple users does not allow you to write to the windows mounted shares, only afp volumes. So our desktops are open to abuse from users, look at Mac Administrator http://www.hi-resolution.com

DAVE is a fine piece of software, but DaveRowland is quite right in what he says. It's quite straightforward if your Win server is already set up.

When you enable Mac file & print sharing under Windows Server 2000, a default share callled "Microsoft UAM Volume" is created. This is available over AppleTalk

1. From the Mac, open Mac UAM Volume on the Windows 2000 Server (ie. through the Chooser).
2. Copy the AppleShare Folder into your System Folder.
3. Run the UAM installer from the Windows 2000 Server.

The "UAM" bit stands for User Authentication Module. It just sorts out the way your Mac logs on to the Win2K Server.

Hope this sorts it.
