I have a desktop with ubuntu 10.04 with my whole music collection in it. I want to access it using my laptop and my brother's laptop, both running windows (vista and 7 respectively).

How do I do that?

All are connected to the same network.

netbios name = musicserver
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Music server

path = /path/to/music
