hmm oddly enough... i figured something out... go me! :P
ignore the previous post...
i added my win2k Administrator
and my login for my WinXP machine to my linux users
then added them to smbpasswd
and i didn't have to mount anything...
i can see my shares on my win machines
and i can ftp (ie browser) or network neighbourhood in and copy files to my box
i'm just wanting to use linux as a server instead of win2k...heh
thanks acid_kewpie for the link!
