Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have mounted a windows share on my linux box (slack9.1) and everything went fine except I can't see the files in one directory.
I can see the files if I look using 'smb://server/music/music' in konqueror but I can't see them if I look in /mnt/server/music.
I can see the contents of all the other directories in /mnt/server just not in the music directory.
Are you sure that you mounted it right? 'cause you being able to see it through smb://...... doesn't mean it is mounted somewhere, only that you can reach the mount.
mount -t smbfs -o username=user \\machine\mount /mount_dir
it'll ask for the password (if it exists) and then it'll be mounted. Hope that's the problems
It really looks liek something specific to that folder - I don't think the issues is on the linux side for this reason. Could be wrong but that's what it looks like.
Make another win folder transport all the info into it - can you access it? now try to rename the test folder to what the original is called [also rename original as whatever_backup] - does it work?
I'm not really sure what the problem is, but could there be limits on the number of files displayed, because there is a lot there? It seems that if I 'ls' a couple of times it shows up eventually. Same thing in konquerer is I hit refresh a few times.
