Samba share ntfs mount

Hey guys

I broke my windoze and got one of these nice blue screans. Even reinstallation wont work. But lucky my FC 5 is still working.

All data I need to save is on a NTFS hd which I mounted to linux using

mount -t ntfs /mnt/ntfs /dev/hda1

If I do share this folder (/mnt/ntfs) I get an access dinied messeg when I try to acces this folder from win2k.

if I do share / for instans I can easily access most folders an files bu do not see the mount point.

Does anybody know a solution?

MY smb.conf :

workgroup = netz
netbios name = samba
encrypt passwords = no

public = yes
read only = yes
directory mask = 0755
path = /mnt
locking = no

path = /
readonly = yes

Tanks in advance ...

I'm assuming that your just trying to get the files off of the old ntfs drive on to your win2k box? If this is the case have you tried using
smbmount //shared/drive /mount/point -o username=<username>

to mount a share on your win2k box to your linux box?

Thank you I found a similar solution: mount -t cifs -o username=username etc.

But I am still interested if there is a way to get it working the way I wanted it to work in first place. If Anybody knows pleas let me know.
