File Sharing with/for Macintosh

I found the package called 'Dave' for the Macintosh somewhat useful. On
the slowness of it's workings, I blame my Mac's speed, or lack thereof,
but it works. What it does is make the Macintosh visible to my Windows
machines as another node on the network (in the network neighborhood) and
lets my Mac see the PC's as nodes on it's network (via Dave, exclusivly).
I beleive it uses the SMB protocol under the hood. I can share files
seamlessly across my network.
You may also wish to look into NFS, Network File System (developed by Sun
Microsystems). It's supported across many platforms, but it's also
commercial -- and more expensive than Dave as I recall.
