Ernest, I am having same problems as Ed and quite frankly I cannot deal 
with the flash movie thingy,  I still have very mixed results with Flash 
and this one does not run on my machine, would you also have a 
recommended link that details this in text besides
and http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/install-samba-server-on-ubuntu/
I find them incomplete since they assume i know Linux better than I do. 
I wish it could be done with the mouse since I never seem to be 
comfortable with the CLI.
