Mounting Windoze Shares in Linux


I'll get around to typing this one up eventually...


As root, type:
   mount -t cifs // /mnt/mountpoint
Make sure that /mnt/mountpoint exists...! It may prompt you for a username or password if the windows server is looking for that sort of thing. This will be the username/password that you would use to login to the windows machine, NOT your linux username/password.

To unmount, become root again and type:

   umount /mnt/mountpoint
