Have you tried to copy the files from the listing across to your linux box?
I just tried it using Mautilus, and it asked me for password and userword
and then nothing happened (not even error messages). I thought I will try to
copy the file that I can see in my /chunlee directory, not the ones in the
folder that it can't display (/chunlee/some_folder).

Where is smbclient? I can't seem to use it. Also, where is config-samba

1. having to retype password/username whenever I make a move
2. can't see into the folder after /chunlee, and can't copy the things I can
see across.
