Default Just a question about HDD recognition.

I have 3 hard drives in my computer.

One - primary. 250 gig SATA. 220 gig Linux partition, 30 gig Windows 2000 Pro partition.

Two - backup. 250 gig SATA. Strictly used for backing up my 220 gig Linux partition of the first drive.

Three - 200 gig IDE Maxtor.

The third drive (Maxtor) I want to share it over the network, so the other 3 computers in my home network have access to it to throw files on it. The tricky thing is, 2 of those 3 computers dual boot, so we'd have to have access to the 200 gig drive on Linux and Windows.

But the thing that got me confused is, the 200 gig drive is plugged in. However when I'm in Windows and I go to my computer, only the 30 gig partition shows. Nothing else. Wonder why?

Also, does anybody know how to make that drive network sharable, even with computers that run Linux? And better yet, anybody know how to set up Samba in Linux to share the drive for Windows/Linux users? I'd rather share the drive OUT of Linux on my computer, but if I have to share it out of Windows, I'll do what I need to.
There's no place like /home.
