Re: Linux in the workplace: NT Domains

Again, I'm asking help. With SAMBA how do I:
Login to the domain (pdc)
I haven't figured that out yet, but it'd be great to know, so that I
could image a computer lab of 19 machines to be dual-bootable, so some
of the students could get some exposure to Linux. (I'm also at a
Helpdesk, in a University setting.)
View computers logged into the domain
"apt-get install smbclient"
edit /etc/samba/smb.conf so that "workgroup=" is set to your NT domain name.
restart samba with "/etc/init.d/samba restart"
mount shares with commands such as:
"smbmount //windowscomputername/sharename /somemountpoint -o
(The "-o" and following is optional if you're logged into Linux with the
same username as your NT domain username.)
Browse and manipulate shares (in Konqueror?)
I don't know of a way to do this directly in Konqueror; once you've
smbmount'ed the shares, you'll just see them in K. as normal
directories. I've played with a couple of GUI tools for mounting Win
shares, but they were kind of "iffy"; I'm not sure of the names now, but
maybe "tkChooser" was one, which can also mount Macintosh shares
(assuming you have the necessary support built into your box).
