Question Debian and Sharing Windows Folder


Im running sarge and I enabled my brothers wireless connection to share his music folder. I look in network servers and find Windows Network showing up. I double click it and find nothing shown. How would i be able to access his folder from my linux box?

The easiest way is just to mount it with smbmount, see "man smbmount".
