[ubuntu] Mount disk on remote machine using

http://ubuntuforums.org – (machines A and B both 10.04) First /dev/sda1 is mounted in /media/big on machine A through fstab Then it's shared through "Sharing options" which makes it available on machine B: Places > Network > A > Windows Shares > Big Now I'd rather have it mounted in B on startup. I'm assuming this should be an entry in fstab but I can't find a decent example. Putting this line in /etc/fstab: //192.168.2.1/media/big /media/scratch cifs user=admin01,password=*********** Then: sudo mount -a Gives me: mount: //192.168.2.1/media/big is not a valid block device (Hardware)
