On my network if I use SMB4K to look at another computer I see the workgroup name and the workgroup computers underneath that. When I click on a shared drive on workgroup computer it's 'mounted' under my home directory. My example looks like this: /home/glenn/smb4k/OLDENDORFF/DRIVEC_(C)

Oldendorff is the name of the workgroup computer.
If I want to use a shell to navigate there I would type:
cd /home/glenn/smb4k/OLDENDORFF/DRIVEC_\(C\)/
I actually let command completion do the work for me. I typed the first few lette rs of each folder and let the shell do the rest by hitting tab and the shell filled in the rest. In other words, cd /ho<tab>gl<tab>smb<tab>OLD<tab>DRI<tab> and there I was.

Is this what you are asking?

yup that what i mean, but somehow i couldn't see the dir called smb4k in my $HOME

I have two desktop computers one is winxp and other is win98 and i am accessing by my debian laptop, and i could see, and access though a file browser. For me I feel more comfortable working in a command line instead of gui

so i need to tell smb.conf to make a dir in my home call smb4k, how could do this

thanks

That's command line style!
