Windows Machines do not know how to access Macintosh shares.  You would need to install a program like Dave to allow this.

Instead of buying any software.

Download this software: NetPresenz 4.1 - Now Free which enable your Mac OS 9 to run a www, fto server where your Win2003 can access to share files etc.

I'm sure there are plenty of FTP and Web servers for MacOS 9.x, but you cannot map a drive to an FTP share or a WWW share in 2003.

leew,

I recommended a split instead of a straight accept to you, because the asker did not specify drive mapping as a requirement - I prefer your option, but imacgouf provided and equally legitimate solution.  If you feel this was in error, please speak up :)
