Easiest way is to switch to Ubuntu Classic... however, in Unity when you
bring up the first folder listing /home/barbara, move your mouse to the
top panel; just to the right of 'Home' you'll see 'File Edit View Go
Bookmarks Help', select 'Go|Windows Network' or 'Go|Network' &
double-click Windows Network in the Nautilus pane. Then again for the
network name. If that doesn't work (Unable to mount location), then
'Go|Location' and that will get you to: smb:///. Enter the ip address of
the other machine in the box as: smb://<ipaddress> and select enter -
that should get you there.

Also, you are posting via gmail & every reply that you make starts a new
thread. I don't use gmail, but If you look through the archives you'll
most likely find a thread telling you how to keep your replies to the
same thread. Thanks.
