Mounting Samba shares from different workgroups


Howdy All,

So my brother has a home network that is setup with multiple workgroups (don't ask why - I have no idea and he refuses to change it). Anyways I just installed Mint 9 (Ubuntu 10.04) on my mother's computer and I need it to be able to access the fileserver in her house where her data is stored. The Mint system is part of the default workgroup and can only see one other system in this workgroup.

The workgroup the file server is a part of is called "hobnw", the server's name is "fileserver", and the share I want to connect to is called "TV Shows"

How can I connect to this network share on Linux? (I also know the username and password) When I browse the network under nautilus all I see is the default workgroup and no others. All of the Windows systems on the network (Windows XP, Vista, and Win7) all see and can access the file server without issues.

Halp!
~Jeff

The way I do it is use IP address instead on names. //ipaddress/share name works well. Some browsers support smb://ipaddress/sharename too.
