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.

oh shit...sorry! i forgot that you have to register to view OCAU...whoops...ok well a run down of whats happening...ive just installed Samba and when i go smbclient -L 192.168.0.200 i get this:
add interface ip=192.168.0.203 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
session request to 192.168.0.200 failed (Called name not present)
session request to 192 failed (Called name not present)
hopefully those errors don't mean all that much?? anway, i enter the password and it displays the shares..
now onto trying to view the damn things!!
somebody mentioned this:
mount -t smbfs -o username=yourusername,password=yourpassword //ipaddress/sharename /mnt/whateverdirectoryyouwanttomntitat
when i go mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=mahpassword //192.168.0.200/f$ /mnt/f it says this:
mount: mount point /mnt/f does not exist
so i went into /mnt and created the f folder then tried again and i get this error:
smbfs: mount_data version 1919251317 is not supported
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //192.168.0.200/f$, or too many mounted file systems
then sombody suggested:
ps -ae|grep smbd && ps -ae|grep nmbd
which should return something like
643 ? 00:00:00 smbd
537 ? 00:00:00 nmbd
if it didn't return that, he said try this: /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd && /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd
so i tried but mine returned
16249 ? 00:00:00 smbd
16251 ? 00:00:00 nmbd
so then it tried the /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd && /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd and tried the ps -ae|grep smbd && ps -ae|grep nmbd cmd again..it returned the same numbers/msg...so i just tried mounting it again but it still didn't work
Edit: im running RedHat 7.1

I had the same error:
kernel: smbfs: mount_data version 1919251317 is not supported
I am using suse 9.0 for AMD64 and had upgraded from the supplied
Samba 2.2.8 rpm to a compiled 3.0.2 tarball. I checked the original
rpms and found that there was a file /sbin/mount.smbfs which was
not in the 3.0.2 install. I softlinked this to smbmount and can mount
