Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I meant by view is to see and connect the Ubuntu Linux on my network neighborhood.. I can share my Windows XP to Ubuntu...but since I can't see my Ubuntu PC ...my linux pc can't share its files to my Windows XP
You'll need to install and configure samba. This is not enabled by default. Unfortunately it's rather more difficult to do in Linux than it is in Windows. If you search this site and the web you should find plenty of information on how to do it though.
I'm afraid I'm no expert when it comes to setting up Samba either. As you say, all the guides seem to be aimed at complicated corporate domain setups, and I haven't yet found a guide for simple home network filesharing. If I do find one, I'll let you know!
yeah things are so complicated when you are very new with an operating system such as Linux. well thanks. Hopefully there will be someone out there that can solve my problem.. so that others that has the same problem as myself will benefit from it
