New User - Transferring Files Wirelessly From PC to MAC?

First off, I'd like to say how happy I am to join the forums, AND I'm even happier with my purchase on the new 13-inch White Macbook.

I've been searching & searching all over the web, because I really need to get my music + other files from my PC to my new Mac. I've enabled 'Sharing' on the 'My Music' folder on my PC, and went to the desktop on my MAC and entered "command-k", to pull up the connect to server window. I then enter "smb://" (my ip address), but it just WON'T connect! I am on the internet wirelessly through my NETGEAR router (that is connected to my PC + DSL modem).

Is my IP address wrong? What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for any help.
