A couple apps i need to use linux at work

Hey everyone,
I decided since i have a few questions.. just to post it all in one.

1) At work i connect to our server ( \\server2005 )
How would i go about setting that up with linux?

2) I have a access database that i need to keep open. I cant get it to open with MDB viewer, or open office. Is there something else i can use?

3) haha not so much work, but would wine work to run world or warcraft? or is there something better?

Both Gnome and KDE allow you to mount Windows shares (on Gnome, menu Places->Connect to Server). From a command line, you can list resources on a server with:

smbclient -L \\server2005

You can mount a share with mount (filesystem type cifs or smbfs).

Microsoft Access runs on WINE, so you should be OK there.

WoW also runs on WINE, though you might want to get Cedega to make your life easier if you are going to be gaming on Linux.
