I have installed the netbook beta and am struggling with unity.
How do I get to preferences? ( as in set screensaver not to need password)
How do I access files outside my home directory? ( as in other partitions on the hard drive)
How do I set up networking? ( as in access to other PC's in the house)

I can understand documentation will be sketchy in a beta so no complaints, but I am finding it hard to use.

yeah, its so not ready. i would recommend you log out & use the gnome session.

i was accessing the stuff by the terminal, but then i installed docky to make things easier.
i also found if you go into gconf-editor-> apps-> mutter
& turn on the keep live hidden, you can then right click the apps on the left side panel to keep them there.

i didn't play with it to much it would constantly lockup on me.
