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
