Re: Novice Networker
I'm able to share folders across Windows Xp and Ubuntu by installing SMB and Samba on the Ubuntu system. Then you can select which folders you want to share in windows and use that systems' IP address to mount it on the linux box. You then can configure a folder to share on the ubuntu box and access it by mapping(tools/map network drive) the directory from Windows Explorer using the IP for the linux box.
You can mount the windows shares from terminal commands, but Ubuntu has some great UI tools to do them for you.
