    Hi everyone,

    My installation on beta2 went just fine. But now I cant seem to access my
    shares on my workgroup, composed of windows xp machines. My computer is on
    the right workgroup and has a unique name.

    I can see all of my computers on the workgroup, but cant see their shares!

    Please help. I dont have any fancy type configuration, just some windows xp
    machines and a shared printer.

    Hallo Adam

    I had the same problem and was able to install the shared disks using
    directly the "\\PC-Name\sharename" option. The drives are visible after that.
    The problem with no non-visible systems also happens from time to time on my
    network and disparears again (no logic there!)

    But I could find no way to install the shared printers
