quick question here. does any1 know how to setup one's mount points so that users can connect to use them (oreferably read only)
here is what i am trying to do. i have begun ripping my cd's to my second hard drive and i would like to be able to share them with my roommates. the thing is that i can use it only if i mount it under the home dir of the user i am connecting with. we have 2 win pcs and i have a mac for myself (that i can conn with without any trouble, but i want only guest accts for them). i set it up with samba and can get it to work but it isnt ideal ....yet.
when i right click on the dir (on the 2nd hd) i get a message that i can only share files in the home dir. currently, i have it set up in the fstab to mount in the home dir of my standard user acct. i just dont know how to leave it mount in /mnt/yadayada so that other connected users can access it (again.. read only).
i hate asking yet another noob question but i am at my wits end. i have been reading posts, man smbmount, and scouring samba's website for most of the afternoon and just cant seem to find the right answer (or if i did come accross it i didnt know it). as always, any help is greatly appreciated.
