I have it working :-)  Mint is excellent.

I found a doc on the net that explained how to create the smbpasswd
file and create an smb account password. The smb server has to be
running for it to work but essentially I did:

> smbpasswd -a Peter

to set the password and then uncommented these lines in smb.conf

  encrypt passwords = yes
  smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

then I could login from the laptop and move files across.
