Hey everyone .... I'm not a TOTAL Linux noob, but am having some difficulties in mounting, sharing a complete hard drive from XP.
Here is my computer set up.
1. A desktop running win XP (sp3) AND dual boots to linux as well. This desktop has a library disk that I can see and use from ubuntu as well.
2. A Laptop running Ubuntu 10.10 This laptop is both wired and wirelessly connected to the network.
I would like to be able to access the Library disk FROM the laptop. I've only just started looking into this and am a complete novice when it comes to networking under linux, (although I did manage to set up printing from the laptop to the printer that is attached to the desktop.) I really don't have ANY clue as to how I should proceed or even the right questions to ask about this.
If anyone could provide a good guide as to how I can get this accomplished or even a general 'direction' to head towards I would greatly appericiate it.
