I've got a box with the LTSP distro of FC3 on it. Since installing it I've added an 80GB drive to use as my shared data drive. I installed samba during the initial setup.
I can share the data partition via samba on the first HDD but I still have eto log in to start SMBD as it doesn't start by default.
I'd like to do the following:
clear the existing partitions off the 80GB drive (old NTFS stuff)
partition it as one partition and get it mounted at boot
start samba at boot
share the 80gb partition through samba
Firstly whats the best way of losing the existing data and partitions and createing new ones? FDISK? Whats the best way of formatting this new partition?
I've greped through /etc/ for files containing "mount" but I can't see where to add the mount command for my new partition.
And I can't work out where to start smbd either
Oh and I need all the mounting and stuff to happen automatically before user login so I just press the power button and 5 mintues later I have access to the shared folder.
Any help appreciated.
