Samba-First steps


I am doing my first steps in samba.¶
I installed it successfully and now from windows 98 i can see the linux hard disk (from the network neighbourhood).¶ How i can do the vice versa?¶
¶Something else from the pc where i can see the linux h/d (has installed w98) has a user .¶ The user is also added with smbpasswd with the same password.¶ Now i am trying to see the linux h/d from a w98 system where no user is specified...¶ How can i do this?¶ I have tried to add nobody user with smbpasswd but it does not help me¶

I hope I undertand the question:

To have access from windows98 to linux box you have to set your win98 session username the same that you have at smbpasswd (i.e. nobody).

To view your win98 share from a linux box you can:

smbclient -L win_box_ip

After that you can mount the share in your linux box by typing:

mount -t smbfs //win_box_ip/share_name /mnt/wherever

You can also use a GUI manager to view, mount and umount shares. You can try:

xfsamba

You have to add any linux valid user, for example the user you typr to log into your linux box.
