I am newto the touch pad (courtesy of the hp firesale) and have some experience of unix/linux. I was trying to find a way to connect to a windows vista share when I came accross this post but am having trouble. I have installed the latest uberkernel using the preware installer and then tried to follow you instructions to no affect and was wondering if you could give me few pointers.
The steps I have done are as follows.
Vista machine name home
Vista machine IP 192.168.1.5
share a directory d:\temp with access to everybody
installed xserver and xterm to run command line, can't seem to find a simpler terminal.
created a folder on the TP /mnt/win
run mount as follows
mount -t cifs //192.168.1.5/temp /mnt/win -o username=myname,password=mypass
I then get the following
mount: mounting //192.168.1.5/temp on /mnt/win failed: No such device
The message is immediate so I guess it isn't tring to connect to the windows machine and must be something to do with the mount point or lack of cifs support though I would have though it would complain about that.
Am i missing a vital step or should I switch to the F15C kernel although this doesn't show up in Preware so not sure how to do that yet.
