In server 2000, you need to install the mac services under the properties of networking.  Then you need to set up an apple sharewhich I believe is under the server area on control panel.  Then you should be able to see the 2000 serer and map to it.  there are 2 diffrent logon methods, I reccomend installing the UAM from microsoft that is a dfault share of the server once mac services are installed.

Hi Basheerpt,

Maybie this can help (it is for NT4, but I quess the changes are not so big), or I'm shure there is similar information for win 2000 too.

Hi
Thanks for the replies..But, Thepilo, I could not find any macintosh services under networkwork properties. If I click 'install' and choose 'services' I can only see 'QOS packet scheduler' and SAP Agent! am I missing something? I am using windows 2000 Server. Under the protocol, I can see 'Appletalk'. No other services related to Macintosh.

Thanks
