    Any ideas how to connect to a Windows XP system? I need to transfer some files from my PC to my Mac. Detailed instructions would be good (Mac n00b here :))

    On the PC side just share the folder you want and on the mac

    Finder > Go > Connect to server

    then type "smb://[IP Address of the PC]"

    You might need to enter a userID and Password from the PC to let you in. Once in you should beable to copy files over to your mac.
