Question network mount permissions


Im curious, just because ive been trying to do it for quite some time, but how do i mount a hardrive from another computer on my network

its partitioned ntfs[and yeah, i know about its "expermental" statsu] on an xp box

i can get it mounted fine, using linneighborhood or mandrake's funny-ness, but i can only read off the harddrive. i have to log in as root to be able to write.

also, how do i mount a network drive from the console?

thanks

I don't think you can write to an NTFS drive yet....although maybe that's different through Samba?

I do know tho that if you mount an NTFS partition its read only.

<A more verbose explination of what happened>

Im trying to write on the ntfs so i can use it as a space hoar. Everytime i try to write as a normal user, i get "Permission Denied" but i found out, in an unfortunate way, that as root i dont have that problem. heh, tried to delete the folder, and forgot to unmount... lost several settings on the xp box... So i figure if i can change the permissions i wont have that problem, but i dont know how to change the permissions to an entire directory, and all subdirectories and files.

A friend of mine told me that because ntfs support is "experimental" its not recomend that you write to it because it could potentially crash the partition. but ive never cared much for silly things like that :-D

And yeah, forgot to mention im using samba, on mandrake9, but i'd like to know how to mount network drives and change permissions in slackware too.

and i have tried man. it did a good job of explaing things that i didnt need/understand.

linneighborhood in the background gets the job done by using samba client. so you need to use samba client, read about 'smbfs' and then you will be able to get it done

Use:

mount -t smbfs -o username=<username>,password=<password> //<hostname>/<sharesame> /<mountpoint>


If you donīt need an username and password to connect to your share:

mount -t smbfs //<hostname>/<sharesname> /<mountpoint>
