I'm not too sure if this is the proper mailing list for this, but from what I 
read, it is.

Is there some "idiot-proof" HOWTO/doc/etc for sharing a simple hard drive 
under windows to a linux client?

On a win2k machine, I have the "d drive" shared as a share called SEC.  
However when I try to mount the drive on linux (using the following command) 
it just says failed ...

bash-2.05# mount -t smbfs -o username=family,password=family //main/sec 
1025: Connection to main failed
SMB connection failed

however ... at the same time I know my linux box can see the share with the 
following command ...

bash-2.05$ smbclient -L -U family
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
session request to failed (Called name not present)
session request to 172 failed (Called name not present)
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

        C$             Disk      Default share

        ---------            -------
        WORKGROUP            MAIN

anyone know whats going on??

thank you very much in advance for any help that you may provide.
