Check Your Operating System:
Windows 2000 Server (and Advanced Server) support the File Server for Macintosh Service. Begin by verifying that you are running 'Server' by typing Ctrl-Alt-Delete and reading the top of the Windows Security window, which should indicate "Server" or "Advanced Server", not "Professional." Click Cancel to return to Windows.

Check for the Service:
Go Start > Settings > Control Panel, Administrative Tools > Services, and look for "File Server for Macintosh".
