mount windows share


i'm trying to rescue some data from a laptop. i can boot into DSL live CD command line, but not the gui (something about the video detection). i really don't care that i'm using command line. i can mount the local laptop hard drive and i can ping the windows computer with the shared folder without any problems. i want to move the data from the laptop's hard drive to the windows computer shared folder. when i try to mount the windows computer shared folder, i do the following:

mount -t cifs //192.168.0.100 /mnt/windowsshare

but i get some error about the cifs module not found...

how do i get this to work?? should i try other distro live CDs?? this is an old laptop so i figured i need to use a small lightweight distro like DSL.

I use dsl-n (damn small linux - not). It has a 2.6 kernel and has the module you need. Here is my modprobe -l | grep cifs output:

/lib/modules/2.6.12/kernel/fs/cifs/cifs.ko

Download it here:

ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distribu...sl-n-01RC4.iso

Since I'm definitely NOT a command line "type of dude", I installed the Samba MyDSL extension to access my Windows shares. I have not had a problem using it, and it's much easier (for me at least) than using the command line.
