Ok, I had a clean install of my other netbook, in Network, it has two
Icons, one for Windows, one for Ubuntu, both of which I can click on,
and open the directories I want. In the problem computer, Only the
Windows Icon is there, and if clicked on it gives an error 'unable to
mount'. I get the error 255 the same way as the OP gets it.
Now, what you mentione above, how would I go about doing what you
suggested, which I have added in red colour? I dont have the experience
you have. I am a quick learner though, but I need to be shown.

So, with the experience you have, what do you need to know, in order for
you to make any form of judgement? I can only give information based on
my knowledge, which isnt huge.
I am just asking a questsion, I am not making any demands.
