Posted by timolthy on Feb. 16 2009,23:39Hi,
I downloaded the VMware player and dsl-4.4.10.zip. Bootup in Vmware was great and fast, no issues.
I have been spending many hours try figure out and have no lucks. I would very appreciate that anyone can help on how to - I am very newbie.
I would like to create the folder (directory) //shared in DSL. then trying to map/mount the resources from WinXP' shared folder
mount -t smbfs -o username=hello password=okokok //winXP-IP_10.1.1.10/shared/ mnt //mydsl/shared
- It does not work this command -
setup the backup the config and all new installed Apps to save in /mydsl/shared. so info / data still remained after reboot.
thanks in Advanced.

I see and can access to Windows's shared drive/Directory via samba. How do I make it permanent, as each time I boot up the DSL, it will mount automatically.
- It's most critical is HOW do I config / setup for permanent (as well) that DSL will save the config and all Apps that I installed to shared/mounted folder, so I don't have to reinstall every time I use DSL. This would save me lotsss of hourss.
I have went thru the FAQ, Wiki pages, Getting Starts, etc... but could not get it work. Which I have to ask people for help.
