    User mounting iso file, smb shares

    How can I give myself permission to mount iso images, and also smb shares. When I try to run smbmount as a user I'm told that samba needs to be installed suid for user mounts, but doesn't say how to do this. And when I try to mount iso images using the -o loop flag it doesn't let me, I have to be root for both of these. Any suggestions
    Cheers

    can you create a wheel group with root privs?

    I am having almost exactly the same problem. I can see and connect to my linux partitions on my XP box, and by using LinNeighborhood, I can "see" the shared folders on my XP box, but it is impossible for me to mount them, either through LinNeighborhood or the console...here is the error I am getting

    Code:
    [root@protium root]# mount -t smbfs //HOMENETWORK/XPBOX/Media /mnt/windows/media
    602: Connection to HOMENETWORK failed
    SMB connection failed
    [root@protium root]#
    trying to use the -o option makes the whole thing not work at all. Yes I have run smbpasswd -a and added a user and password that are identical on both boxes. Anyone with any knowledge of this would be super!

    Don't bother with the workgroup name, just use
    mount -t smbfs //XPBOX/media /mnt/windows/media
