    Acessing XP drive via Samba


    2 pcs on a network, suse 9.0 and XP. Samba server working fine, can view directories & files by typing smb:/blahblahblah into a konqueror window.

    How do I get access to the XP pc just like any other directory? Do I have to mount the samba share?

    Ta.

    Yes, you do. You can use the smbmount command to mount it or mount -t smbfs or even put it in your /etc/fstab with smbfs as the type.
