After loosing a lot of time trying to mount a DNS-323 network drive under Linux Mint / Ubuntu, here is the procedure that worked with me:

1. Install the smbfs package;

2.1 If you want to have the drive mounted only once use the mount command:

sudo mount -t cifs // /media/lua -o guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777

2.2 If you want to always have the drive mounted every time you boot, edit the /etc/fstab file:

// /media/lua cifs guest,rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,nounix,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0


- You will have to adapt the above commands to your IP and folders;
- To edit the /etc/fstab just type on the Terminal "gksu gedit" and find/edit the file;
- I searched for an easier way to do this (like some application), but I couldn't find any that would make my life easier. If you have one, please suggest.

Thanks for posting this!  i had trouble getting this to work in Pardus, until i figured out that the directory you are linking to must exist ahead of time.  Undecided
