How do I map a Unix drive on a W2K machine?

How do I map a Unix drive on a W2K machine?

I am not sure if it is possible but I am trying to map a Unix drive from my Win2K machine without success - path cannot be found. I can ping the unix box successfully and open a telnet session but still not see or access it via Network Neighbourhood. Is there any way to do this?

RE: How do I map a Unix drive on a W2K machine?

You need to be running a program on the Unix machine that allows Windows shares and manages file access, etc (since obviously the Unix box doesn't use a Windows compatible file system).

Samba is the most common.  It's rather simple to set up (assuming you're the admin of the *nix box.)
