Mandrake 10.0 missing smbclient??


I just installed mandrake 10.0, and am trying to learn more computers and Linux. Part of this self-imposed training is trying to get a samba server running so I can network with my other Win2000 computer. I have been reading as much as I can, but I have a little dilemma for which I have found nothing so far:

I used the file packaging thing in one of the pull down menus to install the samba that came on the Mandrake cds, which I downloaded. I have started the server, and can see it on the windows computer (still having problems with browsing shares). The smbclient for the linux end, however, seems to be missing. I tried $find / -name smbclient (and various wildcards), and found nothing.

Has anyone else had this problem? If I am looking for the wrong file name, any help or advice as to the right direction would be appreciated!

P.S. I tried installing a version of samba from some source I downloaded (jumping in with both feet, since much seems to come as source code), and I got as far as ./configure. The make command came back with some errors, and then I figured I was in over my head. I was hoping this would give me the smbclient, but I am still stuck.

Umm.. you need to install smbclient. Open your software "Drakconf" thing and install it.

umm... thanks for the advice! A person can have no pride when asking for help from computer people who know everything from birth ;-) Thats just part of the fun of learning.
I assumed that it was bundled together with the first installation.

Unfortunately this resides on a "cd4" which is not available for download. Beggars can't be choosers as the saying goes.

Thanks again for the epiphany. I'll try to hunt smbclient down again later when I have time to kill.
