Samba Client install???

Using RH8, cannot figure out how to get Samba client installed so I can view my Windows network shares. Any guides/gurus out there?

Click "Redhat"|System Settings|Packages. Scroll down to the "Servers" section and check the box next to "Windows File Server" which will install the Samba server and client.

Alternately, if you have apt installed you can issue the command apt-get install samba-client which will install the Samba client.
