12.04 Windows Folder Mounting

Alright, so I swore to myself that I would never use Reddit as a place to spam my troubles, but yet here I am. So I just upgraded to 12.04 today, and I am loving it. Except I am trying to use my Ubuntu machine as a downstairs media center. The problem is, all my files are hosted upstairs on my gaming machine. Yeah, Yeah I know that's dumb to have them travel across the network, but for the sake of the argument let's say that is the only way it can be done. Well I have installed XBMC to my Ubuntu machine and after starting went into import the video library. Here is the problem, XBMC can't see network drives unless they are mounted to the local file system. I have done what I thought was mounting the drive but, I still can't see the files from XBMC. I am about to rip my hair out, could someone give me some recommendations?

Thanks Reddit, Ryan
