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.

I have a situation where I need to execute (via WINE) a mail application which is stored on a Win2K3 shared folder. I can connect to the remote folder and find the file I need to execute, but the path "smb://username@server/TargetFolder" is not in a valid format for WINE.
Is there a way to map such a path to a standard file system path (i.e. "/samba/TargetFolder") - kind of like setting up a mapped drive in Windows?
Seems like you spelled the shared location wrong? take a look at smbmount for ex. When i have mounted a CD-ROM an stuff manually i have sometimes gotten that message usually meaning i have tryed to for example mount the wrong devices file, /dev/cdrom instead if /dev/hdd for example. Though, try smbmount.

Next, I issue the following:

The shell responds:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //computer/targetshare,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
