Cannot connect to XP Mshome from Linux
I have the latest ubuntu and it seems to be all fine except I am trying to connect to my mshome XP network without any luck.
I have installed Samba and in Network places it shows Workgroup and MSHome.
Click on MSHome and I see my XP boxes.
Click on an XP box and I get.. You can stop this op etc' then I get the 'Unable to mount - Failed to retrieve share list from server' error.
I have been on this for 3 days now and just about over it I'm sorry to say.
The forums are thick with threads like mine without any definitive answers.
Please help me as I do want to try Linux.
I had a distro called MEPIS on before Ubuntu and with these same machines I was able to connect to the network without any problems so I am baffled why I can't now.
