I'm trying to map to a network share over the web from a Mac with 10.6. In Windows, I can map a network drive to "//example.example.com/". Can I do something like this from a Mac? Thanks.

Will this help?

To mount a Windows share on your Mac, click on your desktop so that Finder is the active application, from the Finder menu go to “Go > Connect to Server”. In the “Server Address” field enter “smb://192.168.1.3/mac”, replacing the IP address with the IP address of your PC, and “mac” with the name of the Windows share you created earlier.

I tried that already with no success. I also tried it with afp instead of smb.

What protocol do you want to use? WebDAV?

Try webdav://example.example.com
