Using samba to mount windows shares
Allrighty, here's one that I thought was pretty easy, but I guess not (well, not for me anyway)
I have as a central machine a Win98 box with several folders that are shared on a LAN, mostly with Win9x boxes, but also with the Linux box I have.
Now, I see that I can use Samba client on the Linux machine as a way to get to that info, but the smbclient program is, as far as I can tell, much like using FTP.
I can get and put files, but unfortunately that's not what I'm looking for.
I'd like to be able to do a remote mount, much as you'd mount one linux filesystem from another machine to a mountpoint on the one I'm using. To wit, I want to be able to get to the stuff without actually having to copy it over to the hard drive on my Linux box.
Is this possible? If so, how? I figure if a Windows box can browse remote files on another Windows box, and a *nix machine can browse remote files on another *nix machine, then Linux should be able to do the same with a remote Win9x box, no?
(here's to hoping my question is clear)
