Hi, I have Samba 2.0.7 running on a Red Hat 6.2 kernel
2.2.17 I can mount shares on my windows 2000 pro
machine just fine with smbmount but when I try and
unmount the share it won't let me (i keep getting  the
error "Could not umount /mnt/w2k: Device or resource
busy"). Both smbumount and umount won't work. I made
sure that i was not accessing anything on the /mnt/w2k
at the time ofcourse, I even went as far as
terminating the open session from the win2k's Shares
under computer management.
Another question while i'm at it, how can you allow
regular users (as opposed to root) to mount shares
without giving them SU privileges ?
Appreciate all your help !
