mounting and viewing network shares


Hi

I got fedora up and running and slowly working my way through the niggles i have.

i've managed to access my ntfs shares through the samba client in knonqurer? but now i want to actually mount them.

how can i mount samba shares so they always appear on my desktop?

also how can i browse network shares in general?

and my last question! if i wasnt using a windows file server and was 100% linux how would i access shares on the linux file server? in the same way?

thanks

in /etc/fstab:

\\server\share /mount/point ntfs auto,defaults 0 0

(i think that's right for the first bit.. not done it for years though)

if you were pure linux you would use nfs rather than samba, althoguh you still *could* use samba just fine if you wanted to.

in /etc/fstab add

//<servername>/<sharename> /<mountpoint> smbfs username=<username>, password=,dmask=0777,fmask=0777,user,rw,user,auto

cd /usr/bin and
chmod 500 smbmount
chmod 500 smbmnt

I then run updatedb

in kde, right click on the desktop and in the alt menu find the make link to new hard disk, then select your network drive from the pull down menu.

not in front of my linux box at the moment, but this 99% .....

regards

Mick
