I didn't mean any offense in describing drive mappings as old-school. Just noting that times have changed. My Windows users are encouraged to use standard paths like \\server_name\share_name instead of mappings, given that we didn't standardize on any drive letters. I find the paths lead to a better understanding of where on the network certain things are.

In any case, use the above notes as a way to get to the file shares on your Windows server. The only hang-up you might have is in authenticating to the server. Be sure to put in your Windows domain if you have one. You might need to ask your sys admin for it.

Good luck! I use my Mac in a few Windows networks pretty comfortably.
