Can somone point me to a link or howto going in the opposite direction
and between two separate machines?
I have a RH8 box running on a network and I would like to make the
root directory available in such a way that that it can be be
mounted/mapped as a drive in Windows 2000. I need to know the steps
to set up the linux side and the correct syntax to the map the drive
on the Windows side. Is this where I would use SAMBA?
