Ok, now I tried this:
mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=mypass //machine/share /mnt/samba

and I get this: Could not resolve mount point /mnt/samba

Do you have smbfs support on the kernel ?

Try to use the smbmount command... do man smbmount

Nevermind, I got it. I had to create /mnt/samba. Thanx anyways.

This is pretty awesome. Now I can access my windows box by PUTTYing (ssh) into my linux box and mounting the root share on the w2k boxSmilie.
