    In Tiger, it was a piece of cake. Right under network in finder I would find all the Windows servers and PCs connected. In Leopard however, I have to use the "connect to server" option to connect to any Windows servers and can't view anything except other Macs on the "shared" space in finder. I know this is a known problem and I have seen postings on various sites to try different things but still I have no solution. Does anyone out there know a solution to this problem?

    I am having the exact same problem. I spent 2 hours on the phone with a specialist who walked me through a hundred steps on both my mac and pc without a successful outcome. I am very frustrated......

    In Mac OS X 10.5 go to (System Prefernces>>Network>>Advanced>>
    in the WINS Configrations you must manually enter workgroup name.

    If these windows PCs are running Vista try disabling UAC after making sure folder sharing is setup.
