Let me start off by saying I have never used any linux software before, and am completely lost. However, my wife want it on her computer, so it's there. I need to know how to map a network drive in the latest Ubuntu. The drive is being mapped from my XP Pro machine to her Ubuntu machine. I have 2 folders on my external drive that she wants to be able to access from her computer. I have done some google searching, but with no luck. Answers are either a little complicated or don't tell me how to get to where I need to be to do what they are saying (and since those threads are a few years old, posting in there seems pointless). So I need to know what to do starting from the moment the desktop appears. I can run Windows completely wasted (drunk) with my eyes closed, but when it comes to linux, I have no clue what i'm doing (and I told my wife this when she said she wanted it...I told her if anything went wrong that she would need to wait a few days before i could fix it where-as Windows I would have it done that day...oh well, lol) Thanks for any help.
