[Vista] Seeing OS X systems

How do I make Vista see any Mac OS X systems? I can not find the AppleTalk protocol in the 'add protocol' section.
I believe it was a previous Windows XP or maybe 98 that offered AppleTalk.

To see Mac shares you need to enable file sharing on the Mac and choose the right protocol on the Mac.
Follow these instructions and choose SMB protocol.
»support.apple.com/kb/HT1549?viewlocale=en_US

Note: expanding "Choose the appropriate network protocol to communicate with the type of computer that's accessing your shared files"

Will show you how to choose the SMB protocol.

Also, might want to get this moved to the Mac forum.

True but I thought in Vista you can add Mac support some how. Wasn't sure if it was a protocol, client, or service or even something in the add windows features section.

And how do I move this topic to the other place?

I'm not aware any native service. I know there used to be a client called PC MacLAN. It has been discontinued.

I see you can do this on server editions of Windows

Possibly, if you gave more detail as to what you were expecting to find support for:

1) Filesystems
2) printers
3)Airprint
4) AiRPlay
5) Itunes
6) iPhoto

That worked and for some reason it is sharing the 'system reserved' and the windows partitions but it says access denied.
