This article ( http://www.suntimes.com/output/worktech/cst-fin-ecol16.html ) by Andy Ihnatko seems to suggest that you can automatically discover Windows and Unix servers on a network when using OS X 10.1. Specifically, I'm referring to this quote:
And here I've been typing smb://whatever. Can anyone confirm or refute this automatic discovery thing?
