1. fdisk -l
2. create a mount point, say /mnt/disk1, eh hang on, why is it fat32, I see
no valid reason for this, nuke it with ext3 or something. mke2fs -j
/dev/hdx, edit your smb.conf and reference the mount point comme d'hab.
3. create an entry in your fstab or alternatively use autofs to mount the
drive. The init script for smb will sort out samba starting. Fedora eh ->
chkconfig --level 345 smb on
4. grep smb /etc/services, then add those ports to your firewall cfg.
