I think it is fair to say that there is a price to pay for Xubuntu being so 
lightweight. A lot of stuff that is built into Ubuntu and Kubuntu will be 
missing. smb:// should work in both the heavier desktops, as do various other 

I assume you are actualy stuck with a Windows network? There are other ways to 
share folders other than SMB - and I think they can even interoperate with 
Windows given the right software on the Windows machines. I do not know much 
about this (simple sftp suffices for me), but there are sure to be people on 
this list, and at the Ubuntu forums, who do!
