    Another Samba question


    Never thought about it until reading a few other posts, but question is if I share directories with Samba and they're something like ext3 or reiser, does that mean Windows users can see them or are they just transparent?

    windows users can see / work with the linux file system through samba, that is sambas job, to talk SMB language with other samba / windows machines, and perform file actions accordingly. Windows never accesses the HD directly, always through samba.
