Can someone provide a step by step guide to mount a Windows Share on a Solaris box please?   The explanation needs to be as simple as you would find it in a Solaris for dummies book.

If it's possible I rather stay away from installing software in either machine.

Many thanks.

    Thanks for the recomendation.  I have opted to go with Sharity.  Not Sharity-light or Samba since it seems to be the simplest to install, configure.  It is as simple as it gets.

    Thanks again.
