Ext2: Samba

“In our times of multi platforms and multi OSes, it is important
to be able to talk to the outside world. Samba is the package which
enables Linux to talk to the Windows systems. I will provide a
brief introduction of what Samba can do for you, and how to start
using it.”

“Samba can be downloaded from http://www.samba.org, but it most
likely came with your Linux distribution. The important programs to
share a directory to Windows systems are smbd and nmbd. The clients
to access Windows systems are called smbclient and smbmount.”
