I`ve got a problem with samba and /etc/fstab.
I have a second computer running Windows XP SP2 with Western Digital
MyBook USB2 external hard disk attached. The Disk is shared over windows
network with a label "My Book (J)".
I can manually mount this samba resource by typing "sudo mount -t smbfs
-o fmask=777,dmask=777,guest '//win/My Book (J)' /media/MyBook", but I
can't figure out how to mount it by using fstab...
The problem is with the disk label, as it contains three strings: "My",
"Book" and "(J)".
//win/My Book (J) /media/MyBook smbfs guest,dmask=777,fmask=777 0 0
'//win/My Book (J)' /media/MyBook smbfs guest,dmask=777,fmask=777 0 0
I also tried replacing ' with " but nothing has changed.
PS. Windows doesn't allow me to share the disk with one-word label...
the ... (J) is always there.
Plz someone help me,
