    hey all,

    I own a PC for the time being (until I can afford a new 15" PB) and I have a few folders shared from it over my university network. I'm not talking about a network private or public space. I'm talking about the right click->sharing option. From any of the PC's on campus I can just click Start->Run-> and type in my \\username and access these files. But for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to do this from a Mac. I'd rather use the Mac because I can visually orgainize my shared image folders so I can them efficiently use them in Photoshop. Does anyone know how I can access these shared folders? Thanks.

    I think it's like this, not 100% sure, not at my Mac to check @ the moment.
