Where is smbtree?


Howdy, hopefully someone can help with this. I have downloaded and booted up DSL V4.0 and have had problems connecting to the net via dialup. Got all the server/username/password info using DialGuard so that is all correct. Now I find that since I have a lucent winmodem it would be easier to connect by linking DSL to XP.. I checked the "wonderful" Help page that comes with DSL and learned that I could do so by finding the "Windows sharename" using smbtree then entering the info into smbclient. All well and good, I went thru every folder I could find, even games, and found smbclient but no smbtree. I did a system search and found a link.. KNOPPIX/usr/bin/smbtree but could find no way to open KNOPPIX (if I need to to find smbtree). If there is another way to find smbtree, or get access to it to get the required info, please let me know.
THX

There are other utilities, findsmb and nmblookup that can be used to do the same thing.
However, if using windows for Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) then samba is not going
to help. In a nutshell configure DSL for DHCP and XP for ICS. You can find lots of help for
configuring ICS on the internet.
