I am new to the whole linux thing... and I am beginning to like it more and more.  So, I have machine with windows on it.  windows 98 to be exact.  I want to boot to DSL, format the drive, and set it up as a shared drive so I can access it from my mac os x machines.  Then just run DSL all the time.  So, is this possible and how can it be done?

This only works on a real hard drive install, not on a live cd dsl filesystem. I tried it, and apt-get returns "command not found".
