Windows Share

Hi guys

I have some Windows Shares and I need to mount those shares on my Suse 10 SP3

I would like to know how to mount those?

do I need to enable Samba? or is it just a simple mount command?

thanks a lot

It is a folder that I selected the option to be shared so it can be access by other Windows Servers using something like \\servername\folder_name

so I want the same thing for Linux I want to have access to that share folder

mount -t cifs // -o username=administrator,password=manager /backup

mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=manager // /backup
