Mac - PC Workgroup?
Im not sure if this is in the right forum or not?
At work we have a PC labtop and Mac desktop. Both are connected to the same router. Right now when we want to get something between the 2 computers, we have to e-mail it over, or use a CD or something. Is there a way that we can have a shared folder between the 2 comps, like with 2 PCs?
Any help would be great!

Yes there is.

In System Preferences, select Sharing and enable Windows File Sharing. You will have to then select the accounts which will be allowed to initiate Windows File Sharing.

Then go to your Applications/Utilities folder and Directory Access, select SMB/CIF from the list and Configure..., enter your Workgroup's name in and it should all work fine.
