can't see shared printer/files/folders on windows

Sup y'all.

OK, so I'm still a noob even though I've been working on linux and haven't rebooted into my windows partition.

So I'm asking for help.

Here are the details of my setup:

-Mandrake 9.1 and XP dual boot.
-60 Gig HDD
-512 MB DDR
-One integrated NIC, 2 PCI NICs.
-All 3 NICs connected to a Linksys router/hub.
-Brother's machine running Windows, also connected to the same router/hub.
-Samba 3.0

My objective:

-Browse/execute folder/files shared on his machine.
-Use the HP 670C printer attached to his machine which he's sharing.
-Do something with the 2 PCI NIC's which aren't being used. I see little or no activity in gkrellm for eth1 and eth2.

In LinNeighborhood, I can see my brother's workgroup but it doesn't show any shared files or folders.

I've read a lot of post and tried a lot of stuff but nothing seems to get the printer going and for the 2 NICs...well most of the stuff goes right over my head. I'm the pure defination of an end user.

I appreciate any and all help. Thanks in advance.
