They are connected via one of those linkys ethernet routers! ive managed to get the internet working on the secondary pc but im unable to see any folders or anything else on this pc. Im using a cable to connect both pc's!

There's a menu item called share folders (I think from memory). You want 
to set shared folders on the secondary PC and use NFS (Samba is for 
windows shares).

If this doesn't make any sense I'll try and give more details.
