    to find ip address:

    gui way -
    control panel, network connections, double click on the ethernet connection, look at the second tab

    command prompt way -
    start, run
    run the command 'cmd'
    at the command prompt, run the command 'ipconfig'

    As an alternative, you can use the computer name you specified when installing windows. For example, my car is named 'waffles' (i set it at windows xp install, i could change the computer name under control panel->system if i wanted to) so I connect to smb://waffles in connect to server under os x.

    Whatever you do, double check you checked 'let users change this folders contents' under sharing in XP

    (If I typoed anything, my apologies I am not near an XP box right now)

    cool, just one more question. once i connect through windows sharing on my mac I can access all folders or just one shared? do i need to set this up? actually - instead of asking you all these questions i can probably look it up online. what should i look for... smb sharing? what's it called?

    Just the ones you have shared. (You can share your whole hard drive in my computer)

    Windows file sharing uses the samba protocol, which has been reverse engineered to work on unix and linux as smb. The commands to use smb on linux and unix arent how you use it on OS X though.

    Go ahead and ask questions, this stuff is pretty easy to get going then you don't need to look it up again.
