Network Shares and VNC


I have recently made my laptop a dual boot with XP and Ubuntu 9.04. Works great and appreciate the help everyone gave me doing that. My question is I want to be able to access my network shares, corporate laptop, from Ubuntu. Is this possible? Also, will VNC work in Ubuntu? I installed Wine, but haven't played with it yet, so not sure how it works. Thanks in advance.

They are on a windows 2003 server. They are mapped drives for my file shares.

I got the network drives to work. Still working on getting VNC going. The RDP sessions work, for the most part, VNC I'm still trying to get configured right.
