Networking Mac (os x) with XP (home)

By rickporritt35 ·
I have two XP home PCs sharing files and printers and want to join a MAC (OS X) to the group. The Mac has a NIC and is connected to the router via an ethernet cable but this is as far as I can go given that I've never used a Mac in my life... Any offers of how to do this or can anyone tell me where to find a simple/specific step by step guide of how to join the Mac to the workgroup and give it access to the shared resources?

Thanks

Try this resource. It makes the process fairly clear and nice understandable text.

Good luck!

Thanks Tigger Two - I had already seen this resource and a few others but they didn't quite answer some of the specifics in this case. The situation in question is going to change with a new Mac O/S soon and I may reinvestigate the subject after this.
