/etc/exports is related to NFS, nothing to do with samba
make sure /etc/smb.conf also has /home defined in its config file
Uhhh - why do you need /home shared via smb? I think you mean the [homes]
section in /etc/samba/smb.conf
make sure you have smbd and nmbd running on the linux side
Yes - correct.
make sure tht you have fat/msdos/ntfs compatibility enabled in the kernel

Nope - smbfs is what you need - its a kernel option under remote network
file system. You do not need fat to read a smb share, because you're
reading via SMB, not from a fat drive attached locally.
make sure you run the smbpasswd -j domain_name -r nt_server thingie tooo
To be honest - this might not work with win 2000 domains. MS have
buggered it all up, and I hear that samba is forking development - one
branch will focus on win2000 support.
This command tells nt_server (the PDC of the domain called domain_name)
that your linux box is to join the domain and participate as a domain
on the NT side.... make sure you have C:\\something defined as a share...
If theres a directory on the NT machine you want to access from the linux
box then yes, otherwise you don't need to create shares on the NT side
FYI, NT workstation/server always has \\machinename\c$ as a hidden share
with administrator full access. You'd need to use this command to mount a
NT share into your linux filesystem
smbmount //servername/c\$ /mnt -o username=ADMINISTRATOR
the c\$ escapes the dollars sign so that the shell doesn't look for a
