Total noob.

I have inherited the administration of our LAN [Server 2003] with no background.

Our Graphics dept. has 2 MAC's [O/S X I believe].

Our graphics admin left last week & for some reason his LAN password stopped responding yesterday.
I set up a new password and the LAN connections seemed to be working well.
Today, they are unable to use the new password to log onto the graphics drive on the LAN.
This is happening only on the MAC's.
The PC's make connection just fine with the same login.
There is another user account that works on the MAC"s  so I know there is not a connection issue.

I know PC's but  I know next to nothing about MAC operation.
Am I overlooking something on the MAC's?
Is there something that I need to change in them so the new password allows the connection?
