Is it possible to create a share on my computer to a non local disk. I sign into novell and have a F drive mapped on my computer, i would like to share it so someone could browse my computers shares and see the files on my F drive.

    Not sure if I udnerstand it correctly. Do you mean you have an extern hard drive, if so it should be possible.

    No I have a Novell Netware 6 drive, mapped as drive F, and would like to share it so another machine not running the novell client could access the drive via my computer.

    I don't know much about Novell....but I assume that the drive mapping is to a folder stored on the novell server. The access to that folder would be controlled from the server.  In a windows environment....this would probably be your home drive and more than likely only you and system admins would have access to the folder....which means nobody else would be able to access it without changing the rights on the server. I imagine the concept is the same in Novell...ultimately the access to the folder would be controlled from the server.
