Networking question


I'm currently using RedHat 9 on GNOME connected to the internet on a TI LAN and i was wondering how i can share and access files off of my schools server. I am connected in the schools lab, but all the other computers are Windows 2000 and the server is Windows NT 4. I just took one of the computers and put linux on, i have my internet configured but now how do i access the shared files on the server?

cat /proc/filesystems

if smbfs isn't in the list, then you either need to load the smbfs kernel module or make a kernel with smbfs support.

try using the "smbmount" command.

Code:
[root@internet root]# smbmount //10.17.10.10 /mnt/MEHS

smbmount is like the mount command, except it's for samba (hence the smb part infront of the mount).

Also if you've got a GUI go into your home directory and in the address bar type

smb://10.17.10.10 and it will show the shared files on 10.17.10.10

hmmm, perhaps you could try this
http://opensource.franz.com/nfs/
nfs is the native networking share in linux, perhaps you would have better luck setting your windows box to serve nfs then to get your linux to mount windows shares
