Linux/Windows network

I've also entered this subject in the Networking forum. Just hedging my bets and covering all bases really. Hope nobody minds??

I've just switched my self-build PC from XP Pro to Ubuntu Linux 8.04 Lts, and have been amazed to find it easier to set up than I had thought. Problem is, that although I am connected to the Internet on both PC's, (The other being an old (trusty)1.0ghz xp home machine) I can see and access my wireless network shares from Ubuntu, but not the Ubuntu machine from XP! I'm not sure how to overcome this, any help would be greatly appreciated as ever.

Thanks for the link, but I'm afraid the "swat" route just doesn't work on my machine for some unknown reason, thanks for the link tho, seems a handy one to have.

Thanks again for the link, but on my system there is no "shared folders" option under >>system>>administration>>. Maybe my version of Ubuntu "8.04 Hardy Heron"??
