hi, Gurukhel

You'll need to add Appletalk on the Service appletalk through the Windows installation disk.

Select install - Service's choose have disk.
pick the appletalk....

Hi Gurukhel,
Is this OS X? If so then no you can punt AppleTalk and that is what I would recommend.

Apple and PC can communicate using TCP/IP.

Not all PC operating systems can understand AppleTalk.

File sharing between Apple/Mac and PC is another question. With OS X you could probably use Samba.
