  • 26. Installing a LAN CLICK TO START
  • 27. Using a LAN In this drive mapping example, a server’s drive C is mapped as drive F by a workstation. After the mapping is complete, the server’s hard disk appears in the workstation’s directory as drive F and can be used just as though it were a drive connected directly to the workstation. CLICK TO START
