Share a Mac DVD drive to a Windows PC
Authored by: hypert on Apr 28, '06 10:03:12AM

Tha man page for "ln" (as well as my own experience) says to me that this will work as intended. A symlink will be created in ~/Public that points to the DVD (/Volumes/FFXI). PC users mounting that person's SMB share will have access to that DVD. Note that I believe this will only give them access to that specific DVD, not the whole DVD drive. If you put another disc in, that link will be broken.

Also, don't forget about the wonderful SharePoints tool for sharing any folder/directory/drive, not just your homedir.
