How to Link a samba mounted driver?

Dear All,

I am a Database Administrator, not a Linux expert.

Red Hat as the Operating System.

We have mounted a Windows driver in our Linux Box using Samba.

Now I need to make a link between /home/lobo to /media/samba.

I am running the following command:

ln -s /home/lobo /media/samba
ln: creating symbolic link `/media/samba/lobo' to `/home/lobo': Operation not supported

Does anybody knows if it is possible to do this type of link?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am not an expert in the command ln. usually you link files to files but it should also be possible with directories. perhaps "man ln" helps you further...
