    In one of the menus there is a tool called smb4 or something like that. It does just what you need.

    Turn the computers off and uplug them.


    Yes if someone can connect to your network the potential lies that that same someone could then "see" your files. This also depend on a lot of variables as well.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    That's scary !

    I better use wired connection to be on the safe side.

    Yeah, everyone should use wired connections. So much better (and more fun).

    Yeah, it's in "KDE Button>Utilities>Smb4k", or just type smb4k in the terminal. It's pretty easy to use.

    Just use the command line tools to list the windos shares

    smbclient -L <windows hostname>

    then use the mount command

    smbmount //<windows hostname>/<windows shared dir> <linux mount path>

    mine's something like:

    smbmount //HOMEBOY/dnloads /mnt/samba

    then when you're done just unmount it

    smbunmount <linux mount path>

    smbunmount /mnt/samba
