If you want to connect to any Windows machine that has file sharing enabled, you can use samba, which is built into your OS X operating system. To access a computer you will need to know the name of the workgroup, name of the computer and the share name. For example if I want to connect to "c$" share on a Win 2000 box named "test" in the workgroup called "mac", click on "GO" then "connect to server" and type smb://mac;test/c$ in the address box.

For those wanting more detail (for OS 10.1.x), try this KnowledgeBase article

If you are using OS 10.2 or later, read this article instead.
