If both your laptops are 9.04, why are you using windows networking?
I'd recommend
1) make sure you can ssh between the machines
2) in konqueror or dolphin, use the URLs sftp:// and
sftp:// to look at the files on the other machine.

Once you find the directory you are interested in you can bookmark it
so you never have to type it again.
