Connecting to Windows shared drive from Mac
I am on a Mac running Mountain Lion and at work there are several PCs with Windows XP SP3 Pro. My boss isn't sure what the username is, so when I click the shared drive under "Shared" in the sidebar of a Finder window I can't login. I have the password but not the username. How can I find the username from one of the PCs? Thanks!

Are these PCs running in a domain? I'm guessing not.
Go to the PC, open Control Panel, look for Users, and you can find the usernames in there. Or make one for yourself. Be sure you give yourself Administrator privs on that machine (or machines) too.
Then you should be able to connect. If you give yourself an account using the same username and pw as on your Mac, you won't have to do a Connect As.
Hope this helps.
