"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Check the File Sharing Box in any menus
Click Options then check the third box 'Share files and folder using samba (Windows)
when setting the samba options you might need to specify a username/account
Close the dialog boxes

Or on the PC right click the folder you want to share, choose share with specific people, add "everyone" give read/write access. Then on the Mac in finder choose connect to server and type smb://ipaddressornameofpc
Change that to either the ip of the PC or it's computer name.
