Mounting a network drive


hey I'm a . As you might have guessed.

I've installed Fedora 3 after a friend recommending it.

I'm trying to install Unreal Tournament 2004 DVD from another PC. I've got the drive shared on a Windows network, and I've been able to install it before on another Windows PC.

First problem is trying to see the computers on the windows network, it knows there is a network there, but no the MSHOME network.

Secondly Is it possiable to install something from a network drive in Linux if so how do I?


Thanks for at least lookin,

Dan

Sure you can do network installs in linux, it's great, but what you're trying to do is not going to be easy.

Probably your best et is to go grap pscp ([url]http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/pscp.exe[/ur] ) and copy the dvd to the linux machine. YOu can also download the samba client package for your distribution and use the man page to hard mount the samba share (windows netbios) on the linux machine.

that's pretty much what you're going to have to do any time you want to install from a network drive (windows file sharing/ networking) unless you're going to use nfs, or lufs (linux native networking).

Good Luck.
Ben

Thanks for the reply. It's not quite working yet, so might just resort to ripping the DVD drive out of the other machine for a few minutes.

that's probably the quickest / easiest solution.

FYI, if you're planning on playing ut2k4, make sure you have hardware acceleration configured for your GFX Card, or it will run like crap, regardless of how your your video card/ processor are.
