Sym to MAC

This may be more of a MAC question than a Symbolic's, but ...
I am trying to copy files to and fro a MAC. But there doesn't
seem to be a System Type for MAC in the namespace. I've tried
a few, and had the most success using just a dummy (random) type.
I believe the system type is MACINTOSH.
I am using NCSA Telnet 2.3 on the MAC, and am using services
Service: CONFIGURATION TCP CONFIGURATION
CONFIGURATION is a service that only Lispms normally implement, unless
you've implemented a Unix server for it. It's the service used by the
"Show Machine Configuration" command.
Service: FILE UDP TFTP
Earlier versions of NCSA Telnet provided TFTP. I don't think the
current version does.
Service: FILE TCP TCP-FTP
Service: LISPM-FINGER UDP LISPM-FINGER
This is another Lispm-only service.
Service: LOGIN TCP TELNET
I don't think the Macintosh supports this.
Service: SEND TCP SMTP
Most Unix mail systems don't support SEND. The Macintosh almost
Service: SHOW-USERS TCP ASCII-NAME
Service: STORE-AND-FORWARD-MAIL TCP SMTP
Your Macintosh is probably not running a store-and-forward mailer.
(which is a copy of the services that I use for a Unix machine
and seem to work fine there - not that I totally understand
all this stuff.)
I can copy files to the MAC ok. My problem is I don't know
how to reference a specific folder on the MAC to which to
copy the files. They currently go into whatever directory
I have defined on the MAC as my "Transfer Directory". But
with what I've seem to be able to do with my UNIX copies,
I was wondering if there is some kind of pathname convention
that would work when copying to the MAC, or if I
need to create a new system type.
The syntax for pathnames on a Macintosh is disk:folder:folder:...:file.
This is the native syntax used by Macintosh software, but most users
don't know it because they only use graphical interfaces.
