Heya everybody,


Quick question that hopefully has a quick and easy answer.

I recently installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my Mac Mini, and I'm attempting to mount my Western Digital My Book World Edition NAS to my file system. I can get to the NAS no problems in OS X on my MacBook Pro, as it just comes up in finder and, well, works. Ubuntu on the other hand can't find the thing in Nautalis.

To be honest, I'm not sure if this thing mounts through NFS or SMB, so I'm hoping somebody out there has experience with this drive.

Thanks for the help!

It can be set to be used with samba. Here's the relevant details (http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1531&p_created=1176311730&p_sid=XND7*7Ci&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX 3Jvd19jbnQ9MTMmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PSZwX2N 2PSZwX3NlYXJjaF90eXBlPXNlYXJjaF9mbmwmcF9wYWdlPTEmc F9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1tYXA*&p_li=&p_topview=1).
