Hi all - I know how to do this in Gnome, just can't figure it out in KDE... How do you setup a network drive (either to a windows server or samba) from KDE?

Thanks,
Rob

Two ways I suppose:

1. Edit you /etc/samaba/smb.conf (lots of stuff on the web)
2. Using the "Control Center" -> "Internet and Network" -> "Samaba"

:)

Oh yea hit the "Administrator Mode" button down the bottom to edit the settings in control center.

Thanks for the response. Haven't had a chance to try this yet - but just to be sure, what I am trying to do is connect to a network drive, not provide one as a server. When I see the samba config, I am thinking this is to make a share?

Thanks,
Rob

easiest way -- right click on desktop, create new -> link to location -> smb://host/share (name it too)
control center -> local network browsing - > enter default uname/pw and then double click on the link you created, should connect right away

Ah yea my fault comprehension skills.

Listen to Tscheez or if you select "Internet" from teh applications menu then chooose "KNetAttach" from there you can enter it using a wizard or use the command line to mount it.
