    n00bish question


    Okay, n00bish question..

    I use a program called DHPOS (Dale Harris Point of Sale) .. It's written for DOS. One of my Windows computer is setup as the "global" machine (a server for the rest of the registers)..

    all the other computers connect to it. now.. i was wondering, how can i run one of the remote registers in linux (PCLinuxOS anyone?) ... i tried dosbox but i didnt see any way to map a smb share to a drive letter (which i need!)

    On Windows they all have network drive "Z:" mapped to "\\BROWN1\c\pos\global" and the local register is set to connect to the pos server at "Z:\"

    now, how can i do that in dosbox to map to a smb share?

    In the dosbox you do the mapping as
    net use x: \\machinename\sharename

    Hope that was what you wanted?
