Samba could save me at work, but...
I've just been given a new work laptop (XP of course), but want to sideline it in favour of my own Ubuntu lappy. Only hitch right now is that I can't work out how to access our shared drives.
So far I can see -
Network Servers -> Windows Network -> NRCAF -> SHELTERPC
which is the one I want. However when I double click I get a blank pane, no items, no password prompt. I know my username and password, so how do I get Ubuntu to prompt me for these details and then connect?
I found one howto which made me suspect that my Ubuntu login had to be the same as my network ID, but surely this isn't the case? Struggling to understand, to be honest
Can anyone point me in the right direction pls?
Variously Debian, Mint and Xubuntu on my trusty ThinkPad X60s
