LOL, I actually use the $ for 'other' things than my admin shares... and not just pron! ;-)
I let my neighbours use my wireless so they have access to my media downloads, but I would prefer they not have access or visibility to my family pics and home videos folders - although I still want to share them across the network for my own viewing. For now I am using an NFS (haneWIN) for my personal network shares, and have mapped my public ones to my neighbours via the standard workgroup shares.
To that end, I noticed when browsing the network that the default workgroup name for the Mede8er is workgroup... is there any way to change that? I didn't see the option in the network settings area.
