same question

id like to know the same. i recently was asked to help in networking a solaris with a win 2000 machine. id like to know if sharing works the same as in windows or if the folder or drive to be shared must be mounted, and if so, how? i think a gui would simplify things. actually i think the solaris machine has it cause it has an x11 folder. its just normally run as command prompt.
