users mounting smb shares

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – All my computers are running some form of OpenSuSE 11. I have a SLES11 file server that stores Pictures, Movies, and Music. I would like my kids to be able to mount the share when its missing. Dont want the mount to be automatic during boot incase of not being connected to the network such as when using laptops at friends home. fstab entry: //server/share /media/network smb noauto 0 0 My ideal process would be to have the kids press Alt+F2, which would have a command window show up. Then they could type mount /media/network and be done. After I get this setup, I still need to figure out why only root on the client machines can copy to the File Shares. John (Distributions)
