    I'm trying to share some files with my father. We are connected to the same router. He has a Dell with Windows XP. What do I do to transfer files to him through our network?

    Which way round are you trying to do it?

    That is, are you trying to access your mac from the pc, or are you trying to access the pc from your mac?

    If you are trying to access your mac from the pc, make sure you have Windows (SMB) sharing turned on in System Preferences->Sharing

    If you are trying to access the PC from your mac, make sure you are both in the same Windows workgroup. In Leopard, you can assign the mac to a windows workgroup by going to System Prefs->Network->Advanced->WINS
