Well, Samba makes things pretty easy
To access a win2k share (I'm assuming Samba is already running:
superuser
mount -t smbfs -o username=USERNAME //WIN2KMACHINENAME/SHARENAME /LOCALDIRECTORY
then you can access the share as if it's contents where in whatever directory you entered for LOCALDIRECTORY, so if you used /home/me/share it'd be there

Hopefully that should help

I had a similar problem, But just installed an ftp serer in win2000 and activated the inbuilt telnet server,

so whenever i needed to access anything, i executed the ftp server using telnet, then simply downloaded the files, worked quite nicely.

ps -A | grep smb
and
ps -A | grep nmb

smb and nmb are the two program that constitute samba. The ps command will let you see if they are running. So if you don't see a number and the name smb and nmb. Samba is not running.

Yes, it's running, I tend to prefer to just run ps -A and look for smbd and nmbd, the ? means that they aren't running in a terminal (or at least don't have a terminal defined for them)
this is as it should be (doesn't need to display anything, it just runs in the background)
