I just installed Linux, and I want to mount a Windows share onto Linux. But when I use the mount command, Terminal tells me:
mount: Only root can do that.
Now I tried switching to root by typing: su -
It then asks me for a password. I typed in the only password I have used for linux and that is my user account password, it tells me authentication fails.
How can I get into root/get root privileges to use the mount command?
