Hi All,

I have managed to setup a Ubuntu Server version 8.10 (with Desktop installed so that I have a GUI).

I have started to copy my media files to it but have run into a bit of a problem.  I have been able to share the folders that I want to share on the server, but how Do I connect to them from a client machine so that applications like K3B can see them?

I can goto my network, locate the machine, see the shared directories in Nautilus, double-click on say a movie file and my local Movie player will open and start playing.  Great, but now I also want to open files, say in K3B so that I can burn them to a CD using its internal file dialog to locate files.  How do I create a "permanent" link to this shared folder on my server so that it is accessible via a local programs' file dialog?
