DSL samba mount

I have just figured out how to do this with DSL.

You had the right idea but you need to download and install the samba extension (click on Net within myDSL GUI).

Once installed you will have the LinNeigborhood application when you right click into myDSL menu. This is alot easier to use.

The extension also installs smbmount which is what
mount -t smbfs
hands over to so just substitute e.g.
smbmount //servername/sharename /mountdir -o username=windowsusername

Or you could fix the links to mount if you really wanted.
