What's the English equivalent for this term from the friendly Mr Gates, please...? (In section 4 below)


Die Datenbank darf im Netz nur auf einem Computer vorhanden sein. Sie muss den anderen Computern zugänglich gemacht werden. Führen Sie deshalb die folgenden Schritte (4 und 5) aus:

4. Markieren Sie auf dem Computer für die Rufbearbeitung unter “Arbeitsplatz” das entsprechende Laufwerk, und geben Sie dieses unter “Eigenschaften/Freigabe” für Lese- und Schreibzugriff frei (siehe Windows-Dokumentation).

5. Auf dem Computer für die Datenpflege stellen Sie eine Verbindung her zu dem freigegebenen Verzeichnis unter “Netzwerkumgebung/Netzlaufwerk verbinden” (siehe Windows-Dokumentation).

In XP, the context menu/pop-up menu entry has been renamed (I hate it when they do that - with every new version you have to get used to an entirely different terminology for entirely identical functions.)
My German XP Home has \"Freigabe und Sicherheit...\" in that menu. Can\'t be ar*ed to search for the English equivalent right now, but the Sharing tab bit is right anyway.
