ok, i have a powerbook g4 800 with the airport card. i can connect to the linksys router at work and use the internet with no issues at work, but i do not know how to setup the powerbook so i can view shared folders on the other computers or how to print off the networked printer.

thanks for all your help in advance.

btw, i just got the pb today, so i am new to the mac world.

thanks again, jon koenig

You should be able to browse a Windows network using the Go > Connect to server... command from the Finder, or from the Network icon.

You can browse for, and set up, Windows printers using the Printer Setup Utility in /Applications/Utilities.

There is a Go menu in the bar at the top of the screen in the Finder. It's in between "View" and "Window."
