try not using network neighborhood --

do: start->run
-- where it is \\[ip of a PC on your network]

that get you there?

you can also start->run

--to verify path to host

-- i assume windows xp/2000/nt, if not, use 'command' in place of 'cmd'

In windows, use the "ipconfig" command. This will give you ip address information for the machine.

In linux, use "ifconfig".

Can your systems ping one another? I know this has already been asked, but it is a good indicator. Are the Windows boxes all in the same workgroup?

Sometimes it takes a little while for the windows machines to notice each other and show up in network neighborhood.

If all else fails, post the "ipconfig" and "ifconfig" information here.
