Can anyone point me to the best way of getting files from our Windows running ME to our Mac's running 10.4.2? Just looking to transfer some text files over the LAN.
I believe it's possible but I can't find any docs on it... thanks!

Have you tried
Apple --> System Preferences --> Sharing --> Check Windows Sharing
This allows windows users to log onto the mac and view any "shared" files.
It's pretty self explained when you do it ..

How are you trying to get to the target machine? Try typing the IP address and the users name with the server prefix into the Explorer address bar. ie:
Do you see it then?
Oh ... and by 'username' I mean the user name of the account logged into the Mac you are trying to get to.

You can try Bonjour, they have a windows version [apple.com...] never used it but people say it works.

Thank you. I have a feeling my problem is on the pc end... antiquated technology, it is an older Compaq using Windows ME. Guess it's time to spring for XP, at least then I can use Bonjour and maybe figure out other problems....

Yikes. I imagine you have trouble getting a Windows ME machine to talk to another Windows ME machine much less to a Mac. Move to XP and you should have no trouble. I have a Mac on my network and works great with my Windows machines.
