Using a MAC on a Windows Network and sharing files and resources

I have a Microsoft Windows domain using 2000 and 2003 server with all Windows XP clients.  We have a marketing guy that is going to be getting a brand new MAC and he is going to want to access and utilize files on our file server and we also need to be able to utilize the files that he accesses.  Basically he makes promotional materials for our marketing department and the images he is using and needs we also want to be able to access and utilize.  Can anyone help me in how I am going to be able to make this happen.  The MAC doesn't necessarily have to join my domain but has to access the shared file resources that are out there.  Any help on this would be much appreciated.

The mac would ideally connect using SMB protocols.  This should be native to it.  Or you can install Service for Macintosh on the servers, but they have some weirdisms.  I'd just use SMB on the mac.

So this is going to come right with the MAC and it will go right on a TCP/IP network with no problem.  This is going to be happening next week and I have to be ready right when it shows up.

I use both platforms and if he is getting a brand new mac it will have the new OS X Tiger on it.  He will have no problem accessing the resources or shares.
