Question Linux workstation in a Windows domain


Hi Guys, I am completely new to Linux (not even out of my wrapper yet). My Q is do I need Samba (I've done some reading, but I'm confused) configured on my workstation to access files in a Windows domain.

Tanks

to simply access a windows server, you don't need samba configured, you'd just use the samba client apps to access the server over SMB protocol. you just mount shared folders with

smbmount //server/share /mnt/something
or
mount -t smbfs //server/share /mnt/something

you might also want to try using linnieghborhood (check rpmfind.net) for the whole Network Neighborhood experience, but i reckon most linux users, like me, would recommend you didn't, and embraced consoles more.
