I would like to have directories on several PCs available to other users of a macbook pro running 10.6.6. Is this possible? I was able to get this to work for nfs via the disk-utility. I purchased Lingon from the App Store, but I cannot see how to do it with Lingon either.

Many thanks to anyone who can help.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

AFS is a special case (unless you meant AFP); it's mounted by the AFS cache manager when it's launched. Otherwise, per man diskarbitrationd:

The file /etc/fstab is consulted for user-defined mount points, indexed by filesystem, in the mount point determination for a filesystem. Each filesystem can be identified by its UUID or by its label, using the constructs UUID or LABEL, respectively. For example:

UUID=DF000C7E-AE0C-3B15-B730-DFD2EF15CB91 /export ufs   ro
UUID=FAB060E9-79F7-33FF-BE85-E1D3ABD3EDEA none    hfs   rw,noauto
LABEL=The\040Volume\040Name\040Is\040This none    msdos ro

(Which makes me wonder when Apple gave up on deprecating /etc/fstab.)
