    Does this file reside on your linux box or your windows box? If it is windows box, just execute this command on linux box:
    Code:
    mount -t smbfs -o username=windows_user_name,password=windows_passowrd //Server_name/share /mount_point
    You'll need the smbfs option compiled into your kernel for this to work.

    if you want to setup a full server, take a look at this howto
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
