SMB share hosted by Mac OS

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.

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