[ubuntu] Connecting to Windows Network At Work

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello I work at the help desk at a school. I am wanting to try running Ubuntu on my work laptop, but when I try to connect to a share folder where we store everything that I use for work from day to day I get an error about mounting the network or something. I am new to Linux and really want to learn it. On windows I obviously go to run and type \\sharename\foldername and I am in, but what is the linux equivilent or do I have to set something up? (HowTos)
