Networking with Windows (Hmmmm) and Ubuntu


Hello everyone, I have been using Ubuntu Linux for a few weeks now and recently upgraded to 5.10, which I really love. I love Ubuntu so much that I am planning to use Kubuntu on my other PC (Best of both worlds, a Gnome and a KDE desktop) anyway back on topic.

For now, I have Windows XP Pro installed on my one machine. My XP PC is setup as the host on the network. My Ubuntu machine detects everything automatically and I can accsess my Window machine's partions fine with no problems.

My problem is however on my Ubuntu machine I have two hard drives, the one harddrive is a 4gb which Ubuntu uses. The other one is a 20GB drive which I keep all of my documents etc on. I managed to mount that harddisk in Ubuntu and I can accsess it fine with no problems. My question is how do I accsess that
drive on my other computer which has XP PRO installed. I really need to accsess that drive on my XP machine. Anyhelp would be appricated. Thanks everyone

you would use samba to provide windows network shares.

not really, there's far too much to tell. ubuntu most likely has a gui to configure it for you.
