Connecting to network drives

Asked by hairy_justin on 2008-09-28

I am using Ubuntu 8.04. I want to access files on my second computer which is running Xp. My user name on XP. has no password firewall is turned off, folders have full share enabled. When I try to access the files from Ubuntu it asks for Username domain and password. First couple of times it will just connect and I can access files for a moment, then it wont open anything, it will let me browse the folders I have opened but not access files which are Just audio, pictures.
I dont get it there is no domain or password.
Why I ask. and yes I'm new to ubuntu
