good even after following part of the complete samba
setup thing. It was a matter of different usages of
Dolphin/nautilus between the 32 bit/64 bit machines
and not finding the man pages on the alt CD buggy
install. I had to install the manpages seperately and
thought them auto installed. I can now connect and
view my 32 bit machine from the 64 bit one after
getting the Network to show in the dolphin bookmarks.
Still don't know how that was accomplished but did go
through the Settings-> configure dolphin menu. 
Also, finally was able to mount the 32 bit from the 64
bit machine using a mount command found while
lchata at ubuntu64:~/Documents$ sudo mount -t smbfs -o
//ubuntu/homes /media/winshares
Error connecting to (No route to host)
16068: Connection to ubuntu failed
SMB connection failed
lchata at ubuntu64:~/Documents$

But it's not mounting now as shown above refering to
the wrong IP ADDR. Using the right IP, 192.168.1.
65 works.  If anyone can offer some suggestions to get
my hostname to refer to the current IP and not the one
before I reconfigured the maching when it was
"kubuntu-desktop" and hard wired, I'd be most
Thanks, NoOp for trying. I appreciate it,
