    I used to have two computers running Windows (a desktop running XP Professional and a laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium). I replaced the XP computer with a Linux Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit. I had a network setup on both Windows computers and when I switched to the Linux computer, the network stoped working. Are there any special settings that the windows computer has to h ave in order to work with Samba (Linux Share Server)? Would it help if I remove all the networks and shares from the Vista computer and set it up again? That said, how do I do that on Vista? As always, thanks in advance for your help.
