    If you are running OS X then it is very easy. Just use samba to connect.

    With Finder as your active application go to:

    Go -> Connect to server -> enter in smb://ip_of_windows_box -> Connect

    Will ask you for your user info on the windows box.


    You can also just navigate through the network browser: Go -> Network

    For reference, a great utility for creating shares on an OS X machine is SharePoints: http://www.hornware.com/sharepoints/

    Very handy when sharing folders/files between Mac and Windows machines :)
