Assuming all is working, and Samba is running on the RISC OS machine...
Start File Manager, open the Disk menu, select the Connect Network Drive... option.
A window will appear.
In the Drive selection, choose the drive you would like the shared drive to be called. Windows will automatically select the next free drive.
Ignore the Show Shared Directories on box. It probably won't, by default, show your
shares. You could enter
I, for some odd reason, find it much quicker to just type in the whole path of the share, and let Windows get on with it. As you can see, I am mapping the RISC OS BootDrive (ADFS::4.$) to D:.
At this point, Windows may ask you to log on. I'm not sure why, as only a password is required, and there is nothing to log on to... I guess it is MicroSoft logic that requires you to have a username (hence logging on) in order to have a password... Or something?
Next, you will be asked to enter a password. Simply type it in the window that appears, and then click on OK.
Then wait, for File Manager to catch up with your reality.
But, my friends, that isn't all. Remember I told you to switch on logging?
In Program Manager, open the Network group and double-click on NetWatcher. This is a nifty little utility that tells you who's connected.
