Linux Samba to Linux Samba sharing - possible?


How do I do a SAMBA share between 2 linux boxes? Works fine using Konqueror. But the terminal gives me this:
Code:
sudo mount -t smbfs //192.168.1.2/share /mnt/share -o username=micro420
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.1.2/share,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
**********NEVERMIND!**********
I didn't have 'smbfs' installed on one of the Linux boxes.
*close thread*

why are you using samba between Linux boxes...NFS would be a better solution..

I was just testing SAMBA out between 2 linux boxes. What are the benefits of using SAMBA versus NFS between 2 linux boxes? I also am using NFS.
