How can I access my Windows based home network from my Mac?

I have put a few files on my shared drive on my Windows XP home network. How do I access them through my Mac? I just want to copy them over.

"Go to the Finder
Hit Cmd-K (or ""Go"" menu, then ""Connect to Server...""
In the ""Server address"" box, type ""smb://host or IP/share name"", e.g. smb://192.168.0.5/music

Depending on how your shared drive is configured, you may be prompted to enter username and password.

Your shared drive will now appear as a drive on your mac."
