The problem is that I don't want to share a folder, I want to share a drive. Any ideas?

Nope, doesn't work...

Share this folder

I got pissed off with Vista sharing again tonight and did some searches on Google to see if anyone had any tips for me. This was the first link that came up (and it was from 2007 <G>):
How to Share the Root of a Drive Under Vista - Hardware Canucks

Side note, that **** in post #25 (from Microsoft) didn't do anything for me <G>. Anyway, I am sharing everything and loving life now...
