Oops, my mistake -- the web folder will not appear as a drive; but will appear under "My Network Places" using a name/description created by the user. You can drag and drop files to and from the web folder Mounting web folders (webdav protocol) in Windows 2K Pro or XP: 1. Open My Computer or Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer). 2. From the menu, select Tools/Map Network Drive. 3. In the "Map Network Drive" window, below the "Reconnect at logon" checkbox, you'll find: Connect using a different user name. Create a shortcut to a Web folder or FTP site. The words "Web folder or FTP site." is a link. Click on it to begin the "Add network Place Wizard." As for server-side information -- webdav and ssl modules are included in the default Apache2 installation using the ports system. Using webdav: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_dav.html Web server user authentication: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/howto/auth.html I can't seem to find the SSL certificate how-to I used; but I'm sure you can google your way through this part. Note: KDE's konqueror is the only easy-to-use webdav client that I've found for *nix.
