O.K i'm not massively computer literate soooooo

I recently moved into a share house and the two other flatmate have computers that run windows. At my old house I just used wireless for the internet but now its connected to an ethernet connection?? (is that right term, you plug that thing into the side of the macbook).

so they have a network going where they can share things but how do i connect to them and share files and stuff.


can someone point me in the right direction. i also downloaded this thing called sharity because i saw on another site that you might be able to use that, except i dont know what to do with it now.

Are you sure you wish to share your files and so forth with your new room mates? If you do, go to the Mac Connect Web Site and download their tutorial on how to setup your Mac for sharing with Windows machines.

Go to this LINK.
