Oh internets, help me with my mixed platform environment

So. I've been assigned some IT-type responsibilities at EDA. I have not used a macintosh regularly for nearly a decade and am just starting to feel almost comfortable on the mac laptop they got me. We have both Windows machines and macs on the network and have a Mac OS X server, which I'm about to upgrade to 10.5.

I feel like a total newb in this environment. In case I have some Mac-heads here, I wanted to ask. What should I read? Where should I go for advice and problem solutions?

Especially, how can I set things up so our windows users can connect to the Mac server as a shared device (like a mounted drive --basically like the mac users can) instead of having to sftp into it?
