    Ok, I want to access 2 shared printers on my network. 1 is shared VIA a Win XP machine, the other is a network printer.

    I'm trying to join my XP workgroup but cant for the life of me figure it out. I go to the network folder and it's completely empty - sit there for 30 secs and nothing loads.

    I found some tutorials that said I need to go to finder > apps > utilities > directory access

    Problem is, I dont see anything called directory access ANYWHERE on my mac!

    Can you guys help me?

    Windows machine is running XP

    Mac is running Snow Leopard

    Tried manually typing in the workgroup name in advanced network prefs on Mac - didn't seem to do anything.

    Please help!!!
