This software is obsolete these days... Just install a tiny 25$ router and with a simple configuration for both Macs and Pcs, sharing will be enabled without additional cost and will be supported by both OSX and Windows. Just search on Apple Discussions website at : http://discussions.info.apple.com/
to find out how people are enabling Pcs and Macs to communicate and work together. Also there is a very good reference at http://www.ifelix.co.uk/tech/

Dave is a great application. I have a home network that has:
a Mac7300(G3-400, MacOS 9.2.2),
an Amiga 1200 with PCMCIA Network Card, an Amiga 2000 with a Zorro-2 Network Card
an Atari TT with VME Network Card. I use my Mac as a FileServer.
Every system mounts the sharing place, thanks to Dave.
Also, I do not have printing problems.
Chooser ->LaserJet8 -> Very fast printing networking jobs.

I've found dave to be perfect for direct file access on our pc network which has one OSX G4. Print access may not be the best but with network based printers this isn't a problem. Highly Recommended
