How to access Windows share?


I know Linux shares can be accessed via Samba.

But how do I access Windows shares from a Linux box?

Please help!

im not really sure if you mean the shared documents in windows or somethign else but maybe if you mount the windows drive...have you done that? do u know what that is? if you don't tell me and i will help you out...and if you don't first tell me your drive format (it is either ntfs or fat32) and what partion your windows box is on.

Use the samba client. smbclient, smbmount. Checkout the man pages for smbmount.
Or the documentation at www.samba.org

Yes, smbclient and smbmount worked.

By the way, is there a directory tree view in Nautilus, the default file manager in RH8? The Side Pane is no good to me. I miss Midnight Commander that goes with earlier versions of Red Hat.
