Hi listmates,

- this is killing me. I thought it was simple, hopefully it's just me who cannot seem to get my head right...

On SuSE11 I've got like 15 users (KIWI-LTSP5).
I've got one Win2003 server with shared directories, each owned by an inidivdual user.

Now I'd like to have a desktop icon or whatever to allow my Linux users to access this share on the wintendo box. But only his share, not the shares of the other users.

The shares on the win-machine are properly owned and have proper permissions and all. Usernames and passwords are the same on Linux and Windows.

I can't seem to use an cifs/smbfs entry in /etc/fstab as such a line requires an "... -o username=vk,password=verysecret"

This requirement kills this solution, or...?

I'd like to just copy a konqueror "smb://server-ip/share" icon to the desktop of all Linux users, thus giving them a browse of the windows shares - and a prompt for username and password when the wish to access a certain share. This works perfectly fine when the fileserver is a samba server, will it work just the same with a 2003 box?

I'm able to run a script at login time, could one employ "fusermount" or "fusesmb" or something smiliar?

Any hints/howtos are as always, greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Med venlig hilsen/Best regards
Verner Kjærsgaard
