Depending on the kernal you have, you should be able to use the
following command.

Smbmount //Server/share /mnt/dir -o username=name,workgroup=domain,lf

I have been having some trouble getting smbclient to write big file
than 2GB) files on an NTFS volume.

I have mounted my volume with the following command:

mount -t smbfs -o username="User" password="asdf" //$

I am using Fedora Core 1, and I have found a little chatter while
regarding the smbfs implementation in the 2.4 kernel.  What is the
Is this a limitation of samba or of the 2.4 kernel?  Does the 2.6 kernel
this issue?

Thank you,
