So do you want to access the drives on a windows machine, or do you want ot make stuff available to windows machines on your linux box?

Easy!

Code: Select all

mount -t smbfs -o username=windowsusername,password=windowspassword //ipaddressofwindowsbox/foldertoshare /mnt/mountpoint
Obviously, make sure you create the mountpoint folder first, name it whatever you want... also, I suppose you could use a dns name instead of an ip address for the windows box if you guys have a dns server. Let us know if you have any issues with it.

Oh, and this command is all on one line, it was just too big

Look into LinNeighborhood and/or XFSamba. There is also a KDE browser called Komba, I think.
