i've installed ubuntu, and have a small lan consisting of two pcs, one pure winXP, and my with winXP/ubuntu. i have a fat32 partition for sharing and i can't get to it from linux [it looks empty]. i googled a little and changed the /etc/fstab to look like this:
/dev/hda5 /winblows vfat user,rw,noauto 0 0
at first it looked ok, i could do anything as a regular user. but now [a few days after], again i see nothing, and i as far as i can remember, i haven't changed a thing. what could be the problem?
also, a question about samba, how to allow windows user to access my linux share folder? he's prompted for username/password every time, and he can't get pass that even with my linux usernames, root also.
