I saw that thread, tried evberything on there, didnt help......thank you 
for posting though.....

I have everything fixed I think apart from, Places?Network.....and the 
Windows Icon saying unable to mount, and its very frustrating. I've 
pinged the netbook, and pinged from the netbook to thins computer, and 
they can see each other, I just cant view the directories....
