Hi Reva.

You'll want to use DIrectory Access (Applications/Utilities) to set  
the Windows workgroup.
There may be other concerns and considerations (Mac OS X does not  
support the default Win2k3 authentication settings, etc.)

Beyond that, this is something we do on a regular basis (support a  
few Macs in an otherwise all-Windows network, and vice-versa).
Contact us if you like.
