Using Samba

At this point, I could see the Windoze share I was going for:

smbclient -L <servername>

But I couldn't mount it. Maybe you can -- before you futz with other things, try to mount the samba share you want so:

mount -t smbfs -o username=name,password=passwd //server/share /mountpoint

For this to work, however, you have to have smbfs in your kernel. I didn't, and I didn't know how to put it there.
