Hello All,

Hopefully this is a pretty simple question. I decided to start learning a little of the Windows Server world and installed Win Server 2008 RC 2. I have AD, DNS AND DHCP all running smoothly and the client machines are able to authenticate to the domain properly. One thing I'm confused about is how to set up network share with NTFS permissions on a machine OTHER THAN the server itself.
I have an external drive attached to one of the desktops that I'd like to share out to the rest of the network. I know can just right-click and share the folder out, but those are just standard permissions, not NTFS ones, correct? I'd like to learn how to set up a network share in the proper way and know it's the most secure and efficient method to do it. Thanks for the help!
