    smbtree in DSL.


    Hi all, i'm new to these forums and new to Linux. Anyways i'm using the embedded Damn Small Linux, and i want to transfer some files from windows. Now the help file says to run smbtree. First of all there is no program called smbtree. So i tried the Aterm, terminal thingy, and there i'm prompted with a password, so I try to type something but nothing is typed. And when i press enter I just come back to the default aterm line . So I figured I should run command--> smbtree. voilâ, my DSL hangs... The mouse moves but nothing happens. Sooo. If anyone could help me a little out i'd be supergrateful

    Oh and if anyone has a few pointers on linux vs windows it'd be great, because I don't really have a clue about anything. Partially the reason i'm still running the embedded version (a linuxbox emulator). BTW does linux use .exe files. My senses say no, but I'm asking anyways, (better to ask and sound stupid, than not to ask and stay stupid .
    Thank you in advance.

    Found Windows Shar folder

    I am now able to see the files in the windows share-folder. But when I type Get [filename] it says NT_Status_Access_Denied ... What can I do about this? Also if I make a folder in smbclient using mkdir and move the files there, i get "Error opening local file [filename]"

    It's looking a bit lonely in this forum isn't it?
