Create Windows shares for non-home directories
Authored by: abriening on Jul 22, '05 10:30:52AM

I'm about 3 years late on this response but...

You could create symlinks in your home folder to the folders or volumes on your mac. I symlinked my /Users/Shared and /Volumes/Backup (a separate drive on the mac) inside of ~/links/ folder. So now I let windows map my mac's home folder to G: and use G:\links\Shared or G:\links\Backup to get to these folders / volumes on the PC.

By the way the symlink looks like this ln -s /Volumes/Backup ~/links/Backup.
