Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

that depends on what *nix you are using. If you are using redhat, the simple way is to add that exact mount command to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file. The right way would be to add it to /etc/fstab but I can't explain how to do that. Try doing a 'man fstab' and hack away.
ive made an sh file to mount my windows share for me... ive typed this in it...
mount -t smbfs -o username=samba,password=samba //Desktop/Public /mnt/public
ive tried everything i know, including reading the man files... i can't find smbmount either... and both dont work... ive also tried making the credentials file but nothing works... it comes out with an error of the following
mount: mount point \\Desktop\Public does not exist
./mountshares.sh: /mnt/public: is a directory
thing is, i know this directory works because when i use my other home made sh file containing
/usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient \\\\Desktop\\Public -U samba samba
it seems to work fine... and it does connect...
ive also tried to use \\\\Desktop\\Public in the original sh file to mount my shares but it doesn't seem to work, it gives me the same error...
PLEASE HELP ME!!! it seems as if its not working no matter what i try, ive also recompiled samba 3 times and each time it doesn't work...
as a note im running slackware 8.1
Looking forward to getting some help or insight on this... thanks in advance
