network lubuntu to windows 7


just installed lubuntu on my rather slow gateway ml3108b laptop.
my question is
can i network it to win 7?
i did it in ubuntu and 7 with my old laptop but cant seem to now. i have samba installed but it just seems to show printer options? also when i used ubuntu if i opened home folder there was a browse network option
i cant see any network options at all

Yes there is. If you open a file browser window on the menu bar look under the GO menu, you will see there the Network option.

Good luck to you!

I think that will have to do with the way you have set up your network and your shares in your Windows machine. From there I have no idea.
