    Need to smbmount


    I dont know how to mount samba shares, i found a guide to using smbmount but the command wasnt found, and just using mount with smbfs doesnt work either, it says it cant recognise the filesystem. The folder names have spaces in them as well, so it wouldnt recognise it in command line in the first place. I cant change it its the my documents link which couldnt be edited, and i don't want to.. It also has to be a permanent mount.
    I want to mount smb://office/Lisas Documents/My Music to /home/Fedora/Music.

    try:

    Code:
    mount -t smbfs //office/"My Documents"/"My Music" /home/Fedora/Music
    or something along those lines
