    accessing a samba share in linux


    Heres what i want to do...

    I have a server box running FC8 and I have 2 other computers that dual boot XP/FC8 and XP/Ubuntu. I have Samba set up on the server so that I can access my music and other files from the Windows XP installs.

    Can I mount that Samba share on the linux installs similar to NFS, or like a network drive in Windows? And if so, How?

    you can mount the share with the command
    mount -t smbfs //smbserver/share /mnt

    your kernel has to have smbfs support or when u try to mount a smb share it wont let you, which requires kernel recompile.
