Give us a hint. What distribution and version are you using?

Install samba from your distribution disk. Or check if it's installed with the command:
whereis samba
once you have it installed, you need some minor editing in /etc/smb.conf and add /etc/lmhosts. Read the manuals by typing :
"man samba"
and
"man lmhosts"
more documentation is in
/usr/doc/samba-whatever version you have/
Read it.
Also go to www.linuxberg.com and get LinNeighbourhood, and install it using kpackage or gno-rpm. you can live without the above utility, but if you're new to linux you'll like it.

The easiest way to do this is with Samba's SMBclient. Using the smbclient, you can "ftp" NT shares onto Linux.

You may want to take a look at http://www.samba.org/ for detailed information on Samba's many features...

http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/man/smbclient.1.html is documentation on SMBclient.

smbmount is a new part of Samba, and it allows you to "mount" an NT share.

ssh

If you have gnome you can use a cool API that acts like a network neighborhood for Linux. It's called gnomba and can be found at www.freshmeat.net. You can also use smbclient. type the command smbclient -L <your win NT machine name> -I <your winnt ip address>
This should list the available shares on the NT machine you want to connect to. To connect to a share type the command smbmount //<your win NT machine name>/<share name> -I <your NT machine IP> -c 'mount /mnt'
Where /mnt is the Linux directory where you want hte share mounted. you must obviously also have permissions on the share

Hope this helps
