No, I meant NFS (Sun's Network File System), but thanks for trying.
The real goal is to be able to mount shares on my Mac without having to activate Samba sharing on it.
Ok, sorry, didn't understand that part of things. I'm not a Mac user.
Oddly, many years ago I did actually want to get an Apple computer (especially after they changed to Intel CPU's), but they were just way to expensive. Then, Apple wanted to FORCE everything into their own eco-system and I TOTALLY lost interest in any Apple.
Ya know what's really weird about all of that is that in the past couple of years I've read/seen thing about other people complaining about how Apple has trapped then thru the years. Now thev've been buying Apple devices ONLY to be able to still be able to use all of their other Apple devices. And, or course, complaining about how expensive it is to do so.
Don't get me wrong. Apple (usually) does make rather high quality products. But, let's be honest here... why would anyone actually want to pay $600 for something when they can pay only $300 for something that does just about everything an Apple product does (without being locked into the Apple only world)?
In other words, a few years ago I WANTED to go Apple, but could not afford... but, then later found out that even if I coudl afford it it simply NO LONGER WANTED it. That's not saying I'm happy with the Microsoft world either, but at least it still ended up cheaper,
Anyway, as far as the Archos G9, it's pretty much set up to work with the very most basic of file systems... and, unfortunately there is very little about how Apple does things that match to the rest of the world. If you do find a way PLEASE be sure to post a comment back here to let other know how you did it?
