I think the default mount point for pyNeighbourhood is $HOME/mnt/.... -
NOT /mnt/...
Make sure that you are browsing to /home/andrew/mnt - not /mnt.

By the way, you might want to have a look at the XFCE version of Mint
sometime - this is Xubuntu with an extra layer of user-friendliness.
They have set up fusesmb instead of pyNeighbourhood and this is even

This is the XFCE Mint live CD ..

I hope it is OK to mention Mint on the Xubuntu list.
