    Cool Share network drives

    I need help in mounting a network drive on fedora. I have installed fedora 8 and configured my internet which is working well how ever i need to connect to a couple of shared drives on our network. When i browse the network i on the GUI i just get no computers on network places displayed there(i have a windows network and 3 linux boxes on this network) I can ping them all but need to see the other work stations and also mount another shared Linux network drive.

    A very new to this operating system please help

    You put an entry in the filesystem table /etc/fstab, the actual format of the table entry depends on the filesystem you want to mount. You'll need to declare a mount point, which you create as an empty directory.

    For help with this take a look through the man page for fstab ('man fstab') and the existing format of entries in that file.

    Once you have entries in the fstab file, you can use the 'mount' and 'umount' commands as root to see the directory contents.
