Ubuntu: Connecting to a Windows shared network drive

I got a new PC at work and I made a clean installation of Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10, so I had to make some configuration from scratch. This is a quick note about how I connected to our file server, using samba

From the Places menu, select Connect to server. From the window that appears, select Windows share in the Type drop-down. Then provide the server's IP in the Server field and the folder's name in the Folder field and you are done.
