Hi,

I'm a newbie in Linux. I need to access a CD/DVDROM device that is in a PC running Windows 2000. Is it possible to mount it on my Linux machine (the two machines are located in the same enterprise network)? If so, how to?

Thanks in advance for any help

Enable samba service on linux machine
1) chkconfig --level 235 smb on
2) Share the dvdrom with appropriate permission to the user.
3)  mount -t smbfs -o username=user,password=password //192.168.0.5/dvdrom /mnt/share

user=assumed as user on windows machine.
192.168.0.5=Assumed as the ip of the windows machine
/mnt/share=Assumed as the mount point
