We have a NT network with a lot of users conneting to apropriate mapings to share data between them within each department.  A new guy started her a wek back in our marketing department.  He is heavy into graphic designing and are using an Apple mac laptop loaded with mac OS X.  I got the mail and internet working.  I need to overcome one more obstical and that is for him to acces the shared data directory on our nt sever where all the arketing data is stored for the marketing department.  Is there any idea on how I can do this as painfully as possible.  Keep in mind I started working on a mac for the first time in my life yesterday.

Thanks

Luckily in Mac OS X it is a lot easier than Mac OS 7.x - 9.x

You should be able to see the Windows Network/Server/Shares in the Finder.

I apologize, its been a year since I last networked a Mac to a Windows Server

Here is a brief article from apple.com

Actually this article is much better. I believe this is how I did it myself last time.
