I have setup samba, everything is working..but!
I use gnome-2.12 for the moment, with hal/dbus and I have been trying to figure out WHY the h*ll gnome can mount the smbfs harddrive, but not unmount it when finished...this ends up with I having like twenty different "mount /mnt/samba " pids if I do a ps -ef
then I have to umount every single one of them by hand and as root!
So , i figured, hey, I must make umount accessible by my user, and I did, it workes because I can umount my ordinary harddrive as a user, but not the sambashare...
SO I read some more with google, and found that this is a bug in umount, so my question is:
Can I use smbumount with the sambashares instead ?? (because that one work)...the trouble is that I can't seem to find any option in GNOME to set which command to use when mounting/unmounting smbfs
or, even better perhaps, is there other ways to get shared files from a Windows machine than using Samba?

If you install M$ SFU on the Windoze box, you can use NFS to connect to it.
