Chapter 12. Networking > Managing Groups

12.4. Managing Groups

As noted earlier in this chapter, the circuitry of Mac OS X's file-sharing software seems to lack one feature that was present in earlier versions of the Mac OS: the ability to create and manipulate groups. As your networking setup becomes more complex, being able to work with subsets of the people on your network can be a great timesaver.

For example, you might create groups called Marketing, Temps, and Executives. Later, you can permit an entire group of these people access to a particular file, folder, or disk in one fell swoop. (And, as noted earlier in the chapter, groups are also the key to letting Normal account holders on your network see and access secondary drives on your Mac OS X computer.)
