On an SBS 2011 domain, a user brought in a new mac laptop.  He wants to access the shares and printers on the server.

a) is this doable?
b) is there a wizard to join the Mac to the domain?
c) or is it just the need to use the user's credentials in a pop-up box at some point?
d) they want shortcuts to the shares - how would you  do that?

Thanks!
