It sounds like you have the samba 'client' running which allows you to
see other computers and the various activities it allows.  However, to
allow you Mac to see the Ubuntu box you need to have the sambe
'server' working on the Ubuntu machine.  I'm sorry I don't know how to
enable it in Ubuntu but there will be instructions on the home page
and a lot of useful stuff in the forums.

HTH :-)
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but,  PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
