I have an external hard drive that I have some programs on. It has two firewire ports and needs to stay plugged into the one computer at all times. When I plug another computer into the second port to share files, it only appears on one computer at a time. How do I change that so that it appears on both? thanx.

You don't. If you want an external drive that is visible to more than one computer, try something like an inexpensive NAS (Network Attached Storage) solution. A typical one is the Iomega NAS 100d, but there are many others.
