if you go into a terminal, this should work:

su
(password)
smbmount //windowsbox/share /mnt/dir

just make sure that windowsbox is the network name of your windows box, share is the name of the directory you want to access, and that /mnt/dir exists.

there is a smb.conf file in /etc/samba but renamed as smb.new or something or other, just cd to that directory, and see, and open it, scroll down to this part of the file

Code:
# Most people will find that this option gives better performance.
# See the chapter 'Samba performance issues' in the Samba HOWTO Collection
# and the manual pages for details.
# You may want to add the following on a Linux system:
SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
and change it to this...

and save it as smb.conf and it should work now , I hope :smile:

In Slackware 10.0 there is a very comprehensive guide to samba in file:/usr/doc/samba-3.0.4/docs/using_samba
It should be there in 10.1, providing you installed the documentation packages.

did you create /mnt/dir first? that directory must exist (or feel free to use whatever other mount point you want).

also, you're trying to access //FAMILLE/F - which i suppose is your F: drive in windows. as far as i know, you can't share a drive that way, you have to share a specific folder. in other words, in windows i have the following directory that i want to share from my windows pc named maverick:

D:/MyStuff/Pics

the command to mount this on a remote linux computer would be:

mkdir /mnt/pics
smbmount //maverick/Pics /mnt/pics
