I've just followed that guide to boot up with an Ubuntu Live CD on my dead XP HDD...
I've followed the guide and "opened" all the partitions on my HDD (I can go Places >> Computer>> Double Click on a partition and it'll work).
Now I just want to transfer files to another computer/HDD which is running Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.
Point is, I'm having a bit of trouble making the actual transfer... I've never set up a network of any sort before, and I've followed the "Backing Up to Network Share" section of the guide, but I get an error which reads...
Cannot display location "smb://***@***/***"
Failed to mount Windows share
(Where *** stands for what I've typed down as Server/Share/Username)
Is anyone able to help me with this? I've simply connected the two computers together via an ethernet cable... Just the normal kind (if there are any others o_O) which came from an old modem I've discontinued using...
Can anyone shed some light on how I'd be able to network my computer successfully and transfer some files via it?
Thank you :)
