OS X 10.2 Sharing pane

Sharing pane under Jaguar. The “Internet” tab lets you share your connection (i.e., act as a router) for other computers.

File Sharing

File Sharing is more intuitive, possibly less flexible
Most of these have the red symbol because this is not my user folder, so I can’t peek in those folders.
To begin with, File Sharing is more intuitive, if less flexible -- each user automatically has full permissions on his own directory, as well as a read-only folder for sharing things with users/Guests and a write-only DropBox. There is also a communal Shared folder which is read-only for all named users. The OS 9 sharing setup we went through for the two Joes etc. is basically the default setup for OS X sharing -- pretty much any permutation of privileges you would need is already available, just create your users and put the right things in the right folders.
