Mounting the Samba Shares with Linux Workstation???

Mounting the Samba Shares with Linux Workstation???

Post by jwhit » Mon, 10 May 1999 04:00:00

Hi All,

I have a small home network going. Two computers, Dual Boot,
Redhat 5.1/Win95 and server running Redhat 5.2 & Samba. I
have Server/Samba working fine with Win95, I can log in and
see all the available shares etc.

Currently when I boot into my Redhat 5.1 (the dual boot
machine) system it will mount the DOS partitions (i.e.
C-Drive and D-Drive) on my Windows 95 system through fstab.

Should the Samba server make those partitions on the Win95
system available to the Redhat 5.1 system, instead of doing
it through fstab?

How should I mount the available shares on the Samba server
with Redhat 5.1? Should I place the smbmount lines in the
etc/rc.d/rc.local file? Is that the preferred method?

Is there any special syntax that need to be used in the
rc.local file?

Just trying  to set it up the most logical way.

1. "mounted cd-rom" and "mounted samba share" icons on KDE 3.1 desktop

I have just installed Mandrake 9.1/KDE 3.1 on my machine. I noticed
that I now have a set of icons coresponding to automounted
directories. For example, I have both a "Mounted CD-ROM" and a
"Mounted Samba (Windows)"-type icon. While I think this is a nice
trick, I would like to remove these icons from my desktop (I prefer
the command line for such things). However, I could not find any way
to achieve this; right-clicking on the icons does not offer a "delete"
choice. I would greatly appreciate if somebody would enlighten me as
to what KDE option or configuration file do I have to modify.

Thank you in advance for all your help.
