I have a Windows 7 PC and a laptop that dual boots with Vista and Ubuntu 9.10

At the moment I connect my laptop to the telly and stream films from my PC, which is in another room, to the laptop which I can then watch on my telly.

All this normally happens with the Windows 7 PC and the Vista laptop but now I want to be able to do the same thing when I boot into Ubuntu on the laptop.

I have installed Samba onto Ubuntu and I am now completely confused as to go about things from there.

In the past I tried other distros where the process took only 10 minutes of clicking a few tabs but now I am being asked for too much information which I do not understand.

I would appreciate any help or advice on how to make this process simple and painless.
