    I'm currently at school with my Mac, and being the only Mac on the entire campus, everyone else is at a loss to help me. How do I log onto the local network and access my drive from my Mac? I used Finder and selected 'Network' and it gave me a kind of port-scan showing me every port in the school, but I cannot figure out how to log onto my drive. Anyone know?

    Thanks
    Andrew

    If the server name is 'joe.com', and the shared folder name is 'bobby', on a Windows box you'd do this:

    \\joe.com\bobby

    On a Mac, select "Connect to server" from the Finder's "Go" menu - and type:

    smb://joe.com/bobby

    Just change those names to the names of your real server and shared folder.
