You can leave the shares on the servers and just mount the shares to your

ie: mount -t smbfs //server/share /mountpoint -o username=?,password=?

Just create directories under root that you want to mount to.  You can do
something like /F or /network/F.

Subject: Attaching to Samba shares..

We have been using Samba to provide shares on out Linux boxes for Windows
clients up to now and it has worked very well.

However, we are now moving to replace the Windows/Office PC software with
RedHat 7.2 and StarOffice 6 and so I would like to know how to attach to
the same Linux Samba shares with a Linux client. Before, the staff used to
have "F-Drive", "S-Drive" and "U-Drive" for their relative data
storage/retrieval. What will they have now?
