FC3 WinXP file sharing


I have home network with WinXP box.
New Linux (FC3) box, clean install, no partitions, no dual boot
I cannot see the WinXP shares on the Unix side, nor the Unix share on the WinXP side.
All connections seem up and running. Internet Connection Sharing through XP box is working OK.
Read many posts and followed many of the suggestions. See print out below

The WinXP share that I am trying to see is my C: drive with sharename "Desk1 C"

Anybody any suggestions ? Help very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance

first of all you should try to get rid of the space in the sharename. Rename it to for instance Disk1_C which saves a lot of hassle on the command line.

Hint: don't mount something into your home dir. Make a new directory and mount your windows share there.
I advise you to use CIFS instead of SMBFS and mount your share like that:
Code:
mount -t cifs -o user=YOUR_USERNAME //Desk1/Desk1_C /home/hans/SOMEWHERE
If you installed Gnome (default on Fedora) you might want to try "Applications" - "Network Servers" which also works quite nicely.

You have to configure Samba to share directories from Linux to Windows. (Fedora has a nice and simple GUI for that called "system-config-samba")
