Question mapping drives

how can i map a shared network drive? Is there any command to perform mapping?

For example if i want to map a shared directory named "wwwroot" in machine "dev001" to my machine's "X" drive, how can it be done??

-Thanks
Sakthi.

If you're talking about mapping a Unix directory to a Windows drive, your most likely bet is to run Samba on the Unix server. It provides Windows Network connectivity, so you won't need anything special on the Windows end - just some extra config on the Unix end.

Another way would be something like NFS, but that's less common for Unix/Windows connectivity.

Check out http://www.samba.org for more info / downloads.

Hope that helps.
