How can I get Shared folders that are on my Win-98 machines to mount
automatically on my Linux box?
My current Linux project is running SuSe 6.1, and my preferred desktop
environment at the moment is KDE. I checked out KDE Explorer, and noticed
an icon marked "Remote_Computer". I right click on it and select Connect
New Device, which brings up a Device Properties window. And this is where
I get stuck.
What do I need to set at this point in order to access a shared drive?
There are no help files for this older version of KDE, just a "Sorry, not
implemented yet." message.
Essentially, what I am trying to accomplish is, mounting the MEDIA drive
that is on one of my Win-98 systems, for access to a collection of images,
sounds, and music files without having to just copy them over to the Linux
Samba is operational. From the command prompt, I can access shared
resources using smbclient just fine. But to me, that's only useful (at
this time) for copying files over. I need this drive permenently mounted
and accessible as if it was a part of the Linux box.
