First, you'll need to share your Windows Server. From "My Computer," right click on the CD-ROM and choose "sharing." Create a share name and then configure Samba on the Linux Server.
To configure a Samba share directory on your Linux system, add the following section to the share section in the smb.conf file. With file sharing, the following statement from the config file ( /etc/samba/smb.conf) would allow users "Larry," "Curly" and "Moe" to access the directory that you need.
valid users = larry curly mo
public = no
writable = yes
Something like this will do:
smbmount //winclient/cdrom /mnt/win-cdrom -o
For more information on installing samba, see www.samba.org or look at this Samba learning guide.
