accessing another computer on my home network

I have got 2 computers behind a DSL Router.
I am running Debian Etch and would like to access some files from a windows machine.
I know the router's address, 2 machines have static IPs
What next?
When I opened a file browser -> network -> windows network - it seems as if there was no other computer, the screen remains blank.
I have enabled sharing of those particular folders in windows

Do you have Samba installed on the Linux machine?

thanks for your reply
Yes, I do, however yesterday I switched off samba from the startup list to speed up the boot-up process (using sysv-rc-conf program)

Start it up and see if you can access the files via the network.
