Windows Network not recognized

Asked by rickenbacher on 2008-07-30

When I run Ubuntu 8.04 in live CD mode it recognizes under Windows Network my other Windows PC's and the respective drives. However, once I install it my harddisk I do not find anything anymore under Windows Network. I looked at the all the configurations I could think of, but I cannot find a difference. Result: from the harddisk installation I cannot access my windows drives which is crucial if I want to continue to work with Ubuntu which I like quite a bit. However, until I can get completely rid off my Windows PC I need the access to the file system.
Can you help?
Thanks
Joe

Sounds more like a support request.

I have solved the problem by uninstalling Ubuntu 8.04 and installing ArkLinux which works perfectly.
