> linux# smbclient -W ENGINEERING -U Administrator -L whale
> works fine....asks for passwd but does show resources
> linux# smbmount \\NT_box\C \Backup -U Administrator -P passwd
> ( I don't want to be asked a passwd from the NT_box )
> linux# AutomatedBackupScript NT_Box ( backups the NT_Box to linux:\Backup )
> linux# umount \Backup
> no I do NOT want to use smbtar... I want the nightly backups
> the same for doing linux and NT backups due to all the overhead stuff
