    Have you set your windows directories to share?

    When I setup samba and configured it properly I was unable to still view windows files from my linux box.

    It came down to one simple solution because i have a firewall setup, you need to make sure that eth0 is set up as a trusted device or otherwise you will get strange errors. After that i was up and running.

    using GNOME

    in nautilus type smb://YourWindowsPC and that should take you to it.

    I have found nautilus a bit buggy with smb shares. you could try LinNeighborhood have a google for it and see what you think.
