Question Xp Shares

I have a WinXP pc with one of its partitions shared to the rest of the network...How can i access it using my RH pc? (I don't think it has an "add a network place" button) : )

mkdir /mnt/winxp
mount -t smbfs //XPMACHINE/share /mnt/winxp

That will mount the share as /mnt/winxp

If you need to use a username and password then take a look at "smbmount" for more info.
