RE: Backup Windows server to Linux server



Aaron
	Thank you so much.  I didn't know this was an option of "mount".  I
couldn't get it to work at first....my stupidity, but after reading the man
pages and googling it, I got it to work.  Again, thank you VERY much.

Steve

Yes, you can mount (mount -t cifs) the windows box to a mount point, 
then just copy the data to the mount point.
