  Inside Samba: Windows Sharing for the Mac
Subject:   getting at win machines from osx

Please forgive me if this is completely obvious, but after all of these configurations, is it then possible for my Mac OSX machine to access some kind of shared folder on the XP machine across the hall? What does that person need to do to make a shared folder that I can access? Can I use this Samba stuff to print from my colleagues windows printer?

    This article covers sharing from the Mac to the Windows machine. To go the other way is beyond the scope of something I can easily explain here. There is another article on the MacDevCenter [http://www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2002/11/19/mac_pc.html] by Wei-Meng Lee and Brian Jepson. It should answer your questions for you!
