Thanks. One other thing - Are you mounts available at the command line
or only in some GUI file browser like nautilus. I know that fine
managers these days do often provide auto-mounting of remote file
systems like this, smb, sshfs etc., but these mounts are only visible
in the file manager. I want them mount like any other proper
filesystem, at the command line.
So, just out of interest how exactly do you mount your shares, and how
are they visible ?
