VM Ware Player + Ubuntu. Not able to access Network drives

I have installed VMWare Player on my windows XP and installed Ubuntu. On Ubuntu virtual machine I see Network Drives folder but I do not see any netwrok drives I have on my windows. Any suggestions for what should I do to be able to access Network drives in Ubuntu as well.

How do you have the networking setup between the machines? Can they see each other as distinct entities? Could also be a iptables issue.
