I have 2 computers at home connected together into a LAN. One of them is running Windows 98 and the other is running Mandrake Linux 8.1. The Windows machine has 2 hard drives: drive C (installed as primary master) and drive D (installed as primary slave). Windows 98 is installed on both drives.
Question: How can I mount each one of those 2 hard drives located on the Windows machine onto my Linux machine? Please give me the exact syntax of the command that I have to type in Linux, or what buttons I have to press, in order to get this done.

Thank you very much in advance. :)

Do you want to physically mount them: Put the drives in the Mandrake box or Access shares from the Mandrake box?

For the later:
Is your mandrake box running Samba?

#: service smb status
or
#: rpm -qa | grep samba

If so use the "smbmount" command.

#: smbmount //systemname/sharename /mountpoint -o password=password

Where systemname is the netbios name of your win box and share name is the name of the share you want to connect to.

/mountpoint is the local directory you want to connect it to.
So you could:

#: mkdir /w98

and then run the above command with /w98 as the mount point.

If you don't password protect the share you can omit the -o password portion.

Cheers,

Scully
