Never tried, but I reckon you could do mount -t smbfs -o
username=foo,password=bar //server/share /localmountpoint
It should be no different to any SMB fileshare, whether desktop or server or
pede C (french humour, sorry).
You don't need any samba client/server installed, simply make sure you have
kernel support for SMB. Just suck em and see, if it does not work, the
kernel will tell you.
If you are recompiling, compile it as a module, you only use it the very odd
occasion so don't waste cpu cycles. In fact compile everything as a module
for the craic.

Hi, can anyone give me the main pointers in setting up a linux PC to access
folders on an NT domain??? I've been looking everywhere for the past 2 days
and haven't made any progress. It's feckin' head-wrecking. Do i even need
samba? What about NFS? etc...
