LAN between UBUNTU and XP

Here is an excellent video tutorial I found on youtube that demonstrates how to set up LAN between Ubuntu and XP. I used this myself and works perfectly, and this also works for any other Linux, the steps are the same.

One point to note is that my lan was set up in roaming mode and it couldn't detect the windows shared folders/drives. I didn't notice it at first and finally when I changed it to static ip, I could easily access my shares.
