After rebooting this morning, I went to re-establish the link between Fedora 8 and Mac OS X 10.5.5. I went to the mount point, /mnt/macshare, and issued the mount command: mount -o username=sambauser //192.168.242.174/macshare /mnt/macshare
After entering the password I issued an ls -l and saw nothing - no files. After checking permissions, capitalization, and the Samba setup on the Mac, I decided to blindly cd to a directory in the share I knew existed and issued ls -l and it worked! I returned to the parent directory with .. and issued ls -l and all my files were there.
Also, anyone know why the -o option username isn’t in the man page for mount?
