Sharing smb:// drive to internet


I'm running into a bit of a problem. Hopefully somebody can help me find a solution.

Here is my setup. I have a server that is SCSI based that connected to my DSL modem and dishing out web pages. I is a Redhat 9 box has limited drive space. Off of a second NIC in the server, I am masquerading IP to a switch that networks my internal network wich are WinXP boxes.

Is there any way to link a directory (SMB://computer name/downloads) as /var/www/html/downloads/ on my server so that I can get to it from other computers on the internet?

Thanks.

i think you just need to mount the share where you want it, maybe like this, for example:

mount //winxpbox -o ro,password="" -t smbfs /var/www/html/downloads/
