    Make sure there is at least 1 folder being shared out on your Windows box, then try:

    From Finder, select "Go" then "Connect to server" (or cmd+k).

    Type in: smb:// (use your computer's actual IP address however).

    And hit "Connect".

    It should open in a new window, and stay connected even if you close this window (it will show up as a "place" in finder's new sidebar).
