Hints for XP Home share mount?
I'm running a Dell Latitude D600 on a home Ethernet network. The Dell runs RH 9.0.
When I'm at school, while using a similar router, I can easily mount my Apple iBook's Samba shares on my Dell. I don't even manually start Samba.
When I come home, I try to mount the shares on my wife's Toshiba notebook which runs XP home but it always seems to fail. Anyone got any tips for mounting XP Home shares? I just su and type
smbmount //herpcname/sharename /mnt/wife
Any help would be great! Do they need to be on the same workgroup? I tried to substitute her machine's subnet IP for "herpcname" above and no luck there either.
