Question Accessing windows share from linux ?


Hi,

I'm new to Linux. I installed RedHat 9.0, got my nic working, internet works via a win2k server machine running M$ Internet Connection Sharing, it works fine Now this win2k server machine is also my file storage pc with a big hdd, and the folder all my mp3 files and movies are in is shared on that machine.

What is the easiest way to access this windows shared folder?? Do I need to d/l & install samba or does RH9.0 has standard solutions for this? Any help would be VERY welcome!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

just mount the share of the W2K but to do that you need 'mount.smbfs' which is the part of samba package

Unhappy Sorry!

Sorry for posting twice! I posted in the wrong forum before, but it should be in here.
