...from a linux machine.
Mandrake Linux 9 using Gnome that is. I managed to use my windows proxy to get the internet connection for this computer( I know that's a bit backwards ).
this is fascinating stuff actually. It's such a different environment though. It obviously mounted my windows drive and is able to access it from linux. That's pretty cool but I don't see how to access the network drives. Samba I assume is responsible for that.
disclaimer: this does not mean that I'm joining the legion of the undead who want to destroy microsoft at all costs.
