I just wanted to know if there was a way to view the files and folders of a windows computer in the linux TERMINAL. I need to backup my linux server daily to another windows computer on the network, and I would like to use the "cp -r -u /old /backup" command so it wouldn't re-write every file.

Thanks for your help,
Russell

What you need to do is set up samba on the linux machine. In RedHat you install the following packages:

redhat-config-samba - Samba server configuration tool
samba - The Samba SMB server.
samba-client - Samba (SMB) client programs.
samba-common - Files used by both Samba servers and clients.

That wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I know what samba is, what I need is to see them in terminal.

after you have samba installed ... you can open a terminal window on the linux PC ... mount a windows share from your linux computer ... and copy files to and from the windows computer just like it was any other partition in the linux file system...
