Anyone have a tutorial for this, somewhere?

I've found some information on how to do it in the latest versions of OSX, but I'm not finding all the bells and whistles in my version, so I can see and transfer to/from my PC.

There are many ways to share back and forth. I recommend getting an external or usb drive and using the mac to formatt it as FAT file structure. Both windows and mac can see this and anything on the drive will be able to be opened on the other machine (permitting the program to open the file is on both machines). Another way is to email the files back and fourth if theres not alot and you dont have to do it frequently. The last option you have is to make a share on either computer that can be accessed over the network. Make the share on its own partition, again formatted to FAT, and map the drives.
