First time user. Problem choosing scenario


I read great things about php storm so I decided to try it out. I just downloaded it, installed it and created a project with exisiting sources. This is where I am having difficulty.
Note: I have a virtual machine running ubuntu server while I am running  win7 which has a Mapped networked drive to a folder in the virtual  machine through samba.

I chose the option: "Web server is on remote host, files are accessible via network share or mounted drive."

Ok so the next step asks for the name and a "Project local path".
But why local path? The files are accessible via network share, there is no need to download anything.

I enter a folder name (just to get to the next step) and in the next step "Add remote server" I just don't understand what you want here.
The "upload/download project files" just doesn't make sense and I am never able to see my network share folder on your custom select folder dialog -> http://imagebin.org/191271 (The drive letter missing is Z)

Basically I am a bit lost with your options. I have tried other ides like eclipse, netbeans, nusphere phped  and never had such problems when creating projects.

What am I missing here?
Hope you guys can help,


PS: I also tried the quick start option "Open directory" and I still don't see my network drive. I do see it on windows explorer and on other ides.
