Win XP - Linux (Ubuntu) Home network

By other ·
I have a Dell PC running Win XP Media Centre Edition with a number of printers attached.

I also have a Compaq desktop running Ubuntu Linux v 7

I access the internet through both PC's via a Belkin wireless router. The Dell is attached to the router via ethernet cable and the Compaq connects vis my secured (WEP key) wireless network.

I have a workgroup set up for LAN on the Dell
The Dell PC has the shared documents folders set for file sharing and all the attached printers are set as shared printers.

I cannot see the shared folders or printers on the Compaq (Linux PC). although the Compaq knows the name of the workgroup.

I suspect it's something on the Dell (Win XP) system as previously I had the same (unsolved) problem when I had another PC (Win XP and Win ME) in place of the current Compaq PC.

Any ideas Helppppplease?
