When trying to map shares on a Windows Vista 64-bit system, I am able to connect to SMB shares hosted by a Linux server... but I am not able to connect to SMB shares hosted by a Mac OS system.

Any suggestions?

Look carfully in the network setup on the MAC system, the named used for the SMB connections may be different than that of the MAC Shared name.

You can't map by clicking browse?  
If not, are you getting any errors?

Do you have SMB sharing turned on in the Mac's network prefs? Also, the network prefs page should show you the correct share names.

Finally, you have to set up usernames, passwords and sharing rights.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

This problem was solved by editing the registry on the VISTA machine.
