Recently I have upgraded a costumers server from Server 2003 to SBS2008.
The costumer has got two Macintosh macbooks with this strange :-) Mac OS.
In the old days these Macbooks could access the same shares as the Windows users but not any more.
How do I enable the SBS2008 to make the shares also visible from Macs?

Not sure there's anything you need to do.  I have a server in house running Server 2008 R2, which I realize is not SBS, but still...

And all I needed to do was Go To Server from Finder and to SMB://servername/sharename like I would for any other Windows server share I want to mount.

I found this thread on EE that might help. MS dropped the File Services for Mac in 2008.
