I've been setting up a 10.3.8-based G4 system for use as a simple file server and, with the help of Sharepoints, it's been going pretty well.

My one, remaining problem is that I can't seem to get the login user's public directory to not appear in the list of available shares, despite the fact that all "Public Directory Shared?" entries are set to NO in Sharepoints.

Is there something very obvious I'm missing?

I don't think you can make the users home directory go away. The Public Directory Shared just controls if other users Public directories are visible or not.

One can change Unix permissions of the SharePoints Normal Shares Directory to clear the Others eXecute bit--this will cause the SharePoints Normal Shares user to not be listed in the list of available shares. (To access the eXecute bits of folders/files one can run "chmod 770" within a Unix shell via Terminal or use the SuperGetInfo GUI application from BareBones Software.)

Apple's default is that the Other eXecute bit is set which (I think) allows anyone to reference that directory in a path to a lower level file/directory if they otherwise have permission to access such lower level file/directory. This makes sense if one does indeed want to have a Public readable folder or a write-only Drop Box as I presume Apple envisions.

This issue is further exacerbated under MacOS X 10.4 (aka "Tiger"). With MacOS X 10.3.8 and 10.3.9, regular users with local accounts did not appear in the available shares list to a File-Sharing-only user if Public Directory Shared was set to No. Under, MacOS X 10.4.0, this is no longer the case.
