Sorry about the Linux distro. It's FC6. I entered the following and
got it to work:
mount -t cifs -o username=Administrator,password=#######
So, for the next dumb question: can I somehow put this into my
/etc/fstab so it can be mounted up automatically? I'm assuming a line
similar to the following should be close:
//192.168.1.101/music /mnt/music cifs
username=Administrator,password=####### 0 0
Thanks for all the help!
