the first one is my NFS...i need to hard and soft mout the direcotry..i dont know how to do it...i have to say im using mount not fstab to mount the directory...my ect/exports configuration is :

usr/share/eog 172.168.0.7(ro,sync)
tmp/ 172.168.0.7(rw,sync)

i dont know what to write for hard/soft mount...

the other problem i have is with the my samba server
i have configured samba server through swat, and system-config-samba..everything is ok and i can share a directory on linux and windows but the problem that i have is i have to create a user and password for him and then log into the smb server with this user on the windows server...the thing is after i create this user it is impossible to log in to the smb anymore...

Hi,

About NFS:

NFS has its own set of options, which are not mentioned in fstab's manpage. You need the nfs manpage for the details.

To get you going: soft and hard(default) are the two options you are looking for.

server:/usr/local/pub /pub nfs <other options>,soft would be an example of a soft mount (line belongs in /etc/fstab)

Hope this helps.
