    Does SAMBA have to be a DC or ADC for windoz clients if just for folder sharing? And if as DC or ADC, I guess some kerberos libs have to be installed and configured for samba?

    Thanks!

    I guess this is for windoz, which takes care of connecting to samba folders and mapping to local drives.

    What about Linux users? How to auto mount these 3 types of folders when a linux account logs in?

    Thanks!

    Once you get Samba configured properly it will detect and mount the shares for you, try using Konqueror to browse the shares
    smb://IP.address/sharedfoldername

    So, you mean the only thing for client to do is to have Konqueror browse "smb://IP_Fileserver/sharefoldername? And that's it? No need to set up auto mount script? What about password? Is there a way that no password will be asked since a user is already logged in.

    THanks!

    I have Samba set up on my system, when it boots (Gentoo), all I have to do is either click on "system menu" and browse to my workgroup, and click on shared folder or launch Konqueror smb://pcname/sharedfolder
    I have Samba set up so I don't need passwords everytime I login.
    See this link for more info on my samba set up.
