My HW-config: Notebook with Win95 and a PC with Linux and SMB.

When I access a CD-Rom-Share from my Win95 on a the Unix I can browse the CD-Rom but I cannot open any files or delete or create any files. I always get a error messeage telling me that I should check that the file is not write protected and not used by an other applicationl. I also get this message when I wont to look at a file with the notepade.

Does any one have a clue how to solve this problem?

Regards Ian

Check that the permissions are correct this sounds like you have a permission disallow problem......

If this doesn't work give me some more details about the problem ..

The CD-Rom is mounted with the root account:
r-xr-xr-x root root cdrom

I have checked the priv problems. But I don't know how to solve it.

Its a cd-rom correct? You should not be able to create or write to any files on a cd-rom as it is read-only and all files are write protected when read-only.

For the problem opening a file on the cd-rom with notepad, that sounds like a problem with your smb.conf file. Can you copy any files from the cd-rom share? Have you tried creating a share on the hard drive with the same config and then opening a file there?

Depending on how you have your smb.conf file setup detirmines alot of the access information given to directories.  If you logged into the linux share as root but only allowed user access to the share the access to share would only be at user level.

Try changing configs in the smb.conf file.

I use the same entries for the cd and for harddisk. I have the same problems with both of them.

Well the configuration of smb.conf is a bit of a problem for me. Do you have an example available?

I have a dos-hd which I mount on /mnt/c and another one on /mnt/d. Furthermore I have a cdrom mounted /cdrom. I'd like to access both harddisk rw for all externenal win95 users(or atleast for specific users.).
