mapping network drives


Hi everyone,

first post in this forum ever...be gentle!!

How do you go into mapping a network's drive? I just installed SuSE in my employeer's laptop and am clueless as to how to go about this. Unfortunately, our IT department is not up to the task. Our servers are Windows based for what's worth.

Please advice.
THANKS!!!
foliva.

at a low level you would use either the "smbmount" command, e.g. "smbmount //server/share /mountpoint" or the mount command, "mount -t smbfs //server/share /mountpoint" you can then continue to add an entry to the /etc/fstab file to allow a quick and automated mount. please see the mount, smbmount and fstab manpages for details of these functions.

You may well want a more windozey solution, in which case both GNOME and KDE's file managers can do this for you, normally a case of using a url like smb://server/share in the address base and a very windows like right click and mount.

Thanks...I managed (with the help of a member of our IT staff) to map the drives typing a smb://user@server/share address.
