hate to sound harsh, but if ICS is your choice of networking your LAN,
maybe you should go ask Microsoft people.
why can't you just assign ip addresses to your local network and run
samba. which is pretty much how everyone does it?
maybe you can show us what mount command you tried and how it fails?
i don't really care if you are a newbie and no it doesn't make me feel
anything in particular, but certainly you'd PAY for professional help,
