Sure can. Go to System Preferences -> Network then hit the + then from the dropdown menu select VPN -> PPTP then click create.

Thanks, this was easy - then after I get on Finder and go to "connect to server", I can't seem to connect with hostname or IP address.. is there any way I can browse the shares of my windows domain's file server?
