edit**

found it.

change workgroup to same as windows
command -k
then smb://"ip address of pc"/"drive"

then password and user name for the wndows machine


then to make it map even after reboot do this:

make alias from anything (app,music,doc)
the click on get info for that alias
then click select new original and put in smb://"ip address of pc"/"drive"


worked for me
