    This isn't as difficult as you might assume. You're probably best to start with the official docs: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html (This link is for 10.04, there are manuals for each version, which do vary.) Let us know if you get stuck with anything specific.

    If you're talking about remote desktop, use "rdesktop" (might need to be installed first). If you mean to attach the Windows' drive to your Ubuntu folder, use command "sudo mount.cifs <remotetarget> <dir> -o user=<user>,pass=<password>", where <remotetarget> is the Windows' network address and directory (for example: 192.168.0.1:/C$). replace <user> with your windows username and <password> with windows password for that username. <dir> is a local folder, in your Ubuntu, for example: /home/user/windows.
