This is my first step into LINUX territory and after a bit of looking and 'playing' I found Linux Mint and it seems to suit what I am looking for. Setup seemed to go ok and have everything I need except I dont seem to be able to access my files from an XP Laptop. I can access the files on the XP Laptop from Linux Mint ok but dont seem to be able to get it to work the other way despite a late night and early morning. Any clues on where I might start? Have desktop hard wired to modem/router and laptop working off wireless using same modem/router.
