7. You can choose whether to or not to check the box to launch the network location on Windows Explorer after exiting the wizard.

Click on Finish.

On Ubuntu, make sure you log onto Box.net in your web browser before following the instructions on the How-To Geek blog. This might break at times because support for WebDav has stopped after similar posts were written but at this time, it looks like it works. You might also find Gladinet interesting if you are still having problems connecting, since it’s designed to help you map network drives for web apps.
