http://askubuntu.com – Morning all, I'm replacing our old Win XP Pro office server with a HP Microserver running Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS. I'm not a linux expert but I can find my way around a terminal prompt, I'm a Mac user by choice, sorry :) The office use a mix of Win XP Pro machines and OSX Lion laptops. I included Samba during installation, and I'm planning on using Netatalk for the AFP and Bonjour sharing. I'd quite like to have samba make the server appear in 'My network places' on the Windows machines the way bonjour makes it appear in finder on the Macs, if this is possible? I want to get to a point so (HowTos)
