    Exclamation I Really Need Help!!!!!!!!!! Plz


    Hey there everyone...... i really need help setting up a linux (suse 10.1)/ windows xp file sharing network......... i've been reading a tutorial that require the linux machine to enable smbfs, but i have one problem. When i go to enable it in the sytem services i get the following response:

    /etc/init.d/smbfs start returned 6 (program is not configured):
    Mount SMB/ CIFS File Systems

    THIS IS EXTREMLY FRUSTRATING AND IF ANYONE COULD PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS IT WOULD BE VERY VERY HELPFUL..........

    THANKS A BUNCH IN ADVANCE,
    tom

    ok thanks......

    i used another tutorial:
    http://www.tweakhound.com/linux/samba/page_1.htm

    which seems to be working but when i type
    smb://wick -wick is the name of my windows machine

    i get access denied and then they ask for a username and password!?!!?
    but i dont ever remember setting up a username and password... so i tried my xp's username and password (failed), the root username and password (failed) and about every other username and password that i could think of....... so my question is this....... how do i find out where the username and password is!?!?! or how do i set one up to access my windows labtop?

    thanks again
    tom
