As per the op, if you didnt know something I saw that you asked him, so 
what makes that any different to my situation, but instead of asking me, 
I got a whole different thing altogether. Why is it that you ask one 
person, and not another? Not directed at just one person.

I think in my origional message I talked about windows directory, when I 
mentioned the Icons in Network. and not being able to mount on one. On 
this machine I am using, its a windows machine, with my Ubuntu 
partitioned. I can get to see the windows partition, but going to 
Filesystem, but this machine cannot be found using the network. I asked 
about using SSH, because it was something that maybe I might have been 
able to use, but I could work out how to use it.

How do I get smbtree to even come up. Where is it? Maybe if I could get 
that to work, I might get a reason why thispc wont share?
