Hi

As far as I know you cannot create a symlink on a samba mounted drive - unless the samba mounted drive is itself a Linux ext2/ext3 drive? Don't know. But as as far as I know you must work on a Linux filesystem (reiser / ext2 /ext3 whatever) in order to be able to create symlinks.

What exactly do you want to do?
