    Is it possible to remotely map a PC network drive to a Mac and if so, how do I do it?

    I sometimes work remotely, and my job uses PCs and I have a Macbook Pro at home in addition to an Asus EeePC (Windows XP) netbook. Currently, I'm using the netbook for work purposes and while it actually works great for that, it's old, the battery seems to be going, and I don't really want to do an OS upgrade on a netbook from 2008. If I can map work drives on my Mac, in addition to getting whatever issue I'm having with remote desktop connection and VMWare worked out (a good chunk of my work is done on a virtual desktop), I won't bother to replace the netbook with anything and will spend the money on an iPad for fun. Otherwise, I'm looking at an Asus Transformer book T100 which would give me the Windows environment I need for work and a tablet to play with (although not nearly as good as an iPad) for about $400.

    Thanks in advance for any advice/assistance.

    I'm approaching this issue incorrectly. I think I need to install Windows on the Mac, which would give me what I need.
