Sorry Jim, coming into this thread late (seems to be the norm for me 
lately) -- but if the linux ownership isn't right for a folder, the user 
doesn't see it in the chooser (or OSX equivalent).  At least, I think 
that is the case.

So basically, if you are sharing /files/macstuff -- make user jshmoe has 
permission to see that folder in linux.  The simplest way is to make 
jsmoe *own* it, for testing purposes -- group sticky bits, etc, are 
really squirrelly in the netatalk install I have.  Make sure it works 
with a user owning the folder, then tweak permissions, etc.

That might all be little help, but what the heck. :)
