    you can use this

    PCMACLAN 8.1 for NT/2000/XP

    Description:
    CONNECTS WINDOWS NT/2000/XP WITH MAC OS

    Networking PCs and Macs has never been easier or more complete. PC MACLAN for Windows NT/2000/XP features centralized security, IP server and client support and full Windows NT/2000/XP integration, giving users convenient features for bi-directional file, drive, and printer sharing.

    Enables Cross-Platform File Sharing
    PC MACLAN for Windows NT/2000/XP allows cross-platform file sharing, over IP (Internet Protocol) or AppleTalk, across an Ethernet network. PC users can access any Mac or AFP servers, with file sharing enabled, or AppleShare IP Servers on the network. Mac users access Windows NT/2000/XP files and drives via the "Chooser "or Mac 's Network Browser.

    Supports Mac IP Client &Server Technology
    PC MACLAN for Windows NT/2000/XP provides fast, convenient networking by connecting to AppleShare IP Servers and OS 9 systems on a LAN, WAN, over the internet, or remote dial-up.

    Running both the Print and File servers as services, Mac users can access printer or files on PCs with greater convenience and without jeopardizing network security.

    Print from your Mac directly to any PostScript or non-PostScript printers attached to the PC network
    Print from your PC directly to any AppleTalk Postscript or non-Postscript printer attached to the Mac network
    Access Mac files and drives from your PC 's "Network Neighborhood " in Windows NT or "My Network Places" in Windows 2000

    I'm no Mac expert, but just give it an IP address in the same class as the others (usually 192.168.1.x) and set the gateway IP to the LAN side of the box running ICS. But don't ask me how to configure it, i havent used a Mac since 1996.
