Mounting smbfs with Red Hat 9
I am new to Linux and am trying my hardest to move away from Microsoft. I have installed Red Hat 9 and am wanting to use Samba, eventually as a PDC.
I dont intend to have any Windows machines on the network eventually so need to mount SMB filesystems on my linux box.
With the default installation of Red Hat 9 Samba is placed in /etc/samba. This is where I find smb.conf smbpasswd etc.
To be able to mount filesystems I need to compile samba with --with-smbmount. I cannot find the source files anywhere for samba.
I eventually installed the package from the source CD's that I got with my Red Hat distribution. This placed the Samba files withing /usr/local/samba.
I was able to configure samba and eventually mount a file system but when using 'testparm' it appears that the samba being used was /etc/samba
I feel I am missing something fundamental in linux. How would I remove the /etc/samba installation?
