Wow!  We're really starting from basics here.

What do you want to access -- files on other computers?  You would have o know what you are trying to get to, unles you are "just browsing."  In a corporate environment, "just browsing" often doesn't lead to much.

IN Windows, go t My Network Places, and just explore from there.

Lots more info.
What operating system you have, and the servers operating system.  How you both connect to the server both phyiscally (wireless, DSL, CAT5) and protocol (TCP/IP, NetBUI, IPX)
Are you part of a domain, workgroup, NDS tree, LDAP?
Do you have an account on the server?
The more details the better

OK,
The server only has printer and schedules tasks shared.  You will have to ask to server admin to share the C: drive, and allow your username / password access to it
