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.

mount -t smbfs //computer_name/share /mnt/mount point
Mine is like this mount -t smbfs /winxp/f /mnt/disk
winxp is my windows box name, the windows IP address will work in place of the computer name, f is the drive or share I'm mounting, it could also be a folder share, and /mnt/disk is my Linux mount point.
Originally posted by nuzzy that's what I was trying to say.....
Is the rock folder shared as well?? If not, share it then go
it "should" work....
ok, that's what i'm getting at though. i DON'T want to share the rock folder. i have quite a few subfolders of my initial share that i would like to mount, but it just seems a little tedious to have to share every single folder... not to mention inefficient.
ok... apparantly, no one understands what i'm getting at. so let me try to explain AGAIN.
i have a folder shared on my win2k machine like this:
under this directory structure, i have a certain number of folders beneath the ShareName. i want to mount these other folders to my linux machine WITHOUT specifically sharing them.
i have no problem mounting ShareName using this command:
mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=pw \\\\ComputerName\\ShareName /mnt/mntpoint
HOWEVER, if i want to mount a directory within the share, it does not work:
mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=pw \\\\ComputerName\\ShareName\\SubDirectory /mnt/mntpoint
so basically, i want to mount SubDirectory without sharing it (since i have a large number of sub directories under that share, and sharing them all is more work than it needs to be, and quite inefficient)
