[Wine] Accessing Windows network from application in Wine

I have successfully set up MYOB (accounting software used a lot in Australia) to run with Wine 1.0 (on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS). I now need to be able to access the data file on another PC (Windows XP) via a network which I cannot seem to get to when using the drop down list to find the file - all I can see under 'My Computer' are: C: - fake windows drive, E: - CD drive and Z: - Linux drive.

I can see the Windows network fine using Ubuntu - Places -> Network. I cannot see my Ubuntu machine from the XP machines.

I found FAQ - 6.26. My program fails to do networking, but Linux can get online
and was wondering if this is how to fix this? This seems to apply to games...

My hosts file contains:	localhost	rich-Evo

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
