Sometimes it is useful to mount a Samba share to a directory so that the files in the directory can be treated as if they are part of the local file system.

To mount a Samba share to a directory, create create a directory to mount it to (if it does not already exist), and execute the following command as root:

$mount -t smbfs -o , \\\\\\ /mnt/point/

This command mounts from in the local directory /mnt/point/. For more information about mounting a samba share, refer to man mount.smbfs.
