Mounting Samba shares and Samba Share Login
Ok..can someone tell me how to mount a samba share? I'm mounting a Windows XP NTFS drive.

Secondly..I have edited my smb.conf to share my linux hard drive, but I want to login instead of having it public. This is my current smb.conf:


netbios name = Slackserver
server string = "Slackware Linux 9.0 Server"
workgroup = WORKGROUP
security = share
log file = /var/log/samba.log
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
encrypt passwords = yes
wins support = yes

comment = "Root Directory"
path = /
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes
Now i did have it like this:


comment = "Root Directory"
path = /
valid user = root jeff
public = no
writeable = yes
but when i connect to the drive in Windows XP, it just asked me for a password for the guest account and i couldnt enter a user name. Can someone tell me how to fix this? Thanks.

Did you create a Samba user ?

Take a look at this thread.
