browsing windows networks on mac

Specs: Macintosh snow leopard
Im in residence in college, and all the windows users can connect to the local residence network by going to "my network" Then going to network "people and places" it them lets them browse through people's folders on the network without inputting an ip address.......they can download shared files on the local residence network.

I am connected on the internet through the same network in residence.

How can i join and browse the local local residence network i am connected to? I want to be able to view the same folders they see without having to put in ip address's. Is there a network people and places browse function on the mac? I'm on 10.4.

OSX connects on the background to all available network servers and computers. You just need to wait a few minutes and to check what is available Open any window. On "Places" on the left menu click on the gray arrow to display the available network places.

You could access a specific network place if you know the adress on the server name going to "Connect to Server..." under the "Go" menu on the Finder, Or hit the keys "command + K" to display the serch network window.
