Setting IPv4 address & sharing

Forums: 

Hood take me but I'm beginning to think Windows might be better than Linux. Anyway, I can connect & share my dual-boot PC with no problems under WinXPPro using wired or wireless. (I've another thread going trying to get the wireless-n usb adapter to work.) Two questions so I can get the wired shares to work.
I want to copy beaucoup files from the Win7 PC to the dual-boot PC. When booting into XP, no problems. When booting into Ubuntu 10.04, nothing. I can see the Win7 PC but can't access it. My two questions then are these.
First, is there some switch to enable fire & drive sharing under Lynx as there is under WinXP / 7? Second, how does one set the IPv4 address? Under WinXP it's one address and under Lynx it's another.
Thank you.
Oh, once this puppy is working, it goes to my daughter who wants to learn Ubuntu & Linux.
