using CIFS

Greetings to all,

Well here's the deal: my main PC is dual boot Slackware Linux 9.1 and
Windows XP. I want to be able to mount a specific directory on another box
which is also running Slackware 9.1 (and kernel 2.6.0) when I'm using
either Linux or XP. So I install samba in Linux on my dual boot PC, edit the
/etc/samba/smb.conf, put something like this in it:


comment = Music
valid users = cifsuser
path = /music/mp3
public = no
writable = no
printable = no


Basically I want this directory to be mountable ONCE and ONLY for this
other Slackware box and be available to only a some users on this box.
(I'll achieve that with permissions once I can get it to mount)
So I used 'smbpasswd -a cifsusers' entered a password in there and
then installed mount.cifs on the client box. And tried:

mount -t cifs //$ /mnt/music -o user=cifsuser,pass=mypass

no way I can get the thing to work and there's not much help on Google to
get it working. So I'm kind of stuck now. Any help will be greatly
appreciated in getting this to work!
