accessing a Windows server ?

I'm in the midst of switching over to Linux...I eventually hope to be free of Windows...but for now, I have a Windows file server here at home that I need to be able to access from my linux laptop. I have some documentation about how to set up a linux OS as various kinds of servers, but I don't really have a good how-to regarding accessing existing Windows servers via Linux. Does anyone know of anything ?
