Has anyone running samba on their Linux box been able to mount a Windows
file system with the CIFS protocal?
I've been able to do this on my Ubuntu Dapper box:
sudo mount -w -t smbfs -o username=my_onyen //severname.domain.unc.edu/some_dir ~/some_dir
but root owns everything so I have to sudo cp or mv files in and
out...but I can edit a file in-place and save my changes!
Perhaps the Windows server needs to be configured diffrently to allow
the mounted directory to have my uid and gid own directories and files?
I've read that making a Kerberos authenticated connection would help.
