I have the MyBook World 1TB which I have connected to a XP using the Mionet software. So after filling up at least half the drive and getting irritated with the Mionet software I have found this site. All I would like is for the drive to be seen on my network and accessible by any PC/Laptop linking to the network.
So my questions are(My linux knowledge is beginner level):
1> Will the MyBook World need to be formatted to have no data on it for me to enable ssh and get going from there?
2> To set the MyBook World up just to be accessed via a drive letter, can this be done with data on the drive?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
