    Backup from linux to windows


    Hi. I have a debian Lenny server (with samba) with loads of .conf files. I also have a Windows 2003 server with a HP ultrium backup unit. My idea is to mount a windows shared directory one per day and copy there my .conf files. I have created a shared directory named "linux" in my windows server and a "linux" user (in windows) that is member of the administrator's group. Now, How can I mount the unit and copy the files?

    if I remember right you have to set up the folder as a shared folder.
    if your linux boxes detect the windows server you should be able to copy the files easily to the folder you want
    (did this with xandros, buntu, and pclinux os.)

    one note to remember though most versions of linux will not easily recognize an ntfs fromatted drive
    its better to format to fat 32
    this format is recognized and accessed by almost all versions of linux
