Mapping Network Drives in Suse 10.1
How can I map network drives in Suse 10.1? I'm trying to map a drive on my Suse PC from a linux server. I have all the ip,user/pass etc info, just don't know how to go about it. Can you browse through an explorer like you can in Windows?

Also how would I go about mapping a drive from a Windows Server? I have install Samba, but again don't know how.

Thanks any help is greatly appreciated.

You may want to google and read the "Samba Howto".

Use nfs for going linux to linux. Use samba for going linux to the windows server.

Take a look at this for nfs information:

Essentially you mount a nfs share with 'mount <ipaddress>:/share/name /mount/point.'

You can bowse and work with windows shares using nautilus or konqueror.

Do take a look at the samba howto (also on for more info on working with linux and windows shares.

To make a particular share automatically mount at boot edit /etc/fstab.
