if logged in as root , I goto /root/mnt then open windows network scan then can open an xp shared folder.
Problem is I have to do this all the time!! Aye, aye, aye. Stupid, inconvenient, and near impossible to teach a non geek. BUt doable. (Installed samba and samba shares.)
Now, as user Lisa, I goto either lisa/mnt and nothing there. /root/mnt a bunch of empty folders. But I cannot open start>network>windows network because in lisa, it isn't there!!!!! I want to run as Lisa because at least a few programs will install some launchers in that user. (Do I need to do a gsplat for each app, several times as each user? Example tuxtype2 doesn't work as Lisa, but as root.)
