I go to Places>Network Servers. I then see the Windows Network icon. I
click on that and see the Home icon. I click on the Home icon and get an
error message: The contents of this folder could not be displayed.
Sorry, couldn't display all the contents of "Windows Network: home". Do
you have any ideas why? I can easily get into the folder with my Windows
2000 system.

Printer... I went to System>Admin>Printing. The Printers dialog box
opens up with the HP LaserJet 1200 listed as one of the printers. I
tried to install it. I went into the Properties/Connection tab and don't
know if I should be using the CUPS or the Windows SMB connection. Any

Thanks for your quick reply. I appreciate it very much. As you can tell,
I'm new to Linux Ubuntu
