If anyone has it setup and working, I would appreciate what you did.
Just copy SMB-handler file to L: and optionally if you want a GUI then SMB-Net anywhere you want.
GUI seems to open iconified, so when you run it, deiconify it and enter all values and click connect, that's it :)
If GUI seems a bit complicated, then it helps reading SMB-handler->Mountlist part of the guide. That seems to be only place where different options are explained even a little bit. And when you're doing it, it's same to make mountlist for your share. Copy paste the net driver handler example mountlist to sys:storage/dosdrivers/smb0 for example and edit the last (startup) line for your needs. Then type in shell "mount smb0:" and you should be done.
And some other notes for this thread. I would avoid installing whole samba if you don't absolutely need it. At least don't config inetd.conf things etc, even if you have its dir for using some binaries from it. Having it completely setted up causes useless writes to logs etc...
And don't you have any other ways to transfer files? FTP is common and well working if you need to transfer files, but don't need streaming of movies or similar... you can even mount it as a device too. And linux based nas should have other ways too I think...
