All PCs need to be Windows when a network is built by Congo now.(Congo,CongoJr,Cliant,FileServer) Can't the Congo network which used Macintosh as the server in the future be built?
Server is Macintosh PC.Others(Congo,CongoJr) are Cliant and accesses to Server.
An Apple Mac OS-X file server is already possible.
Congo uses the Windows XP shared folder filesharing method - the newer versions of MacOS-X can support this.
You will need to ensure that the Windows compatibility options are active on your Mac, and know the network address and share name given to the sharded folder.
You'll also need to ensure that the Mac has an ETC-band IP address - 10.101.1.xxx
Unfortunately I don't own a Mac and so can't help you further - I suggest looking up "Sharing folders with Windows computers" within your Mac help files and online.
However, Mac OS-X Clients are not yet possible.
Keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Actually, every version of Mac OS X can share files to Windows computers via SMB.
This can be enabled in the "Sharing" pane of System Preferences with a single click. Then you should be able to login. It will even show you what address to type in on the Windows box to connect to it. On earlier versions of OS X (<10.2?), you had to also enable specific users to be allowed to login via Windows sharing in the Accounts/Users pane.

Is Macintosh PC possible at both Intel or PowerPC?
All releases of OSX have had a version of SAMBA built into them, so yes.
What you may need to do, however, is alter your samba configuration to allow anonymous logins. You can fidn how to do this by googling it.
To set an IP address manually, its in Control Panel > Network, i think. I havent had to do this for a few months, so I'm a little rusty on it.
