Just moved into a new house and I'm setting up my home network. I have the usual cable modem to wireless router setup; the wrinkle is that I have three USB 2.0 external harddrives I'd like to each make into a network drive, i.e., mountable and read/writeable by the two Macs that will use the network. The router has four ethernet ports available and the drives are currently connected to one Mac using a four-port USB 2.0 hub. My google-fu and ancient networking (OS 8.0) skills have failed! I have a five year-old MacBook (10.4) that I can contribute to the cause to act as a server. Thanks for any help!
