If you want to do a Windows share from Mac OS X you need to know a few pieces of information first:

   
The name of the server.
   
The name of the share.
   
The name of the Network or Domain where the server lives.
   
Your user name on the server.
   
Your password on the server.

    As there is no browsing feature when connecting to Windows shares, choose Connect To from the Go menu in the Finder.

    Enter "smb://your_server_name/your_share_name" (sans quotes)
    Note: You must replace "your_server_name" and 'your_share_name" with your appropriate information for this to work.

    A dialog box then prompts you to authenticate yourself: Enter the name of the workgroup in which the server resides, your user name on the server, and your password in the appropriate fields.

    The share will appear in the Computer area in a Finder window and on your desktop (if you have selected the Finder preference to show mounted shares on your desktop)
