    you need to enable file sharing in windows... right click on a folder and you can set the sharing preferences and what not... on mac side system preferences > sharing > select file sharing and options > smb ... also system preferences > network > airport choose advanced > WINS tab and type the name of the workgroup your pc is on so your pc can see your mac
