    this is probably a pretty dumb question, but my mind is a blank ...

    I am running several computers plus assorted printers and an NAS box (LaCie 1TB drive) on a home LAN. All computers are running WinXP SP2. When I added the NAS box and a sharepoint, I added a single user (me). When I tried to access the NAS box from different computers, everything seemed to work fine. But what I neglected to test was accessing the NAS box using an account on any of the computers that was different (acct name and password) from the account that set up the share in the first place. So, I recently tried to access the NAS box from another account and could not. I had to log into the share using the original account name and password.

    So, how do I add additional users? I can not seem to find a hook into the share attributes to add users.

    What's the model number of the NAS?

    Chances are you add users in the NAS's webpage.
