I have the same situation but on a wired network. My windows machine cansee all mac files. My mac can see all shared folders and open them but nothing can be seen. Have you solved this? Thanks.

Brody, try doing an smb mount from your powerbook, you can do this by clicking go in the finder, then click connect to server. in the space type smb://ip address/. you will need the user name and password for the computer you are trying to connect to
