  1. Go to the Finder
  2. Hit Cmd-K (or "Go" menu, then "Connect to Server..."
  3. 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.
