It looks like I have to re-upload the smb_init file. Thanks for pointing that out. You are past that problem however, having solved it for me. See what I mean by *very* beta? ;-)
EDIT - I uploaded the fixed versions of "hosts" and "init_smb" to ps2.nuclearfall.com and noted the change on the webpage. Thanks for catching the problem.
You will also need to ensure that you are running the services on your Windows PC - server and TCPIP Netbios Helper FIRST BEFORE SETTING UP YOUR SHARE. You can verify that you are running these services by running (as administrator user) "net share" in the cmd.exe window. You should see the default Windows shares, and once you create your share you will see it listed too.
You are not doing the windows share correctly. Your current actions would be if you wanted to mount a remote host file share to your Windows PC when you actually want to share a directory on your Windows PC to others. If you have Windows XP you can go to the folder with Windows file Explorer and right click it, select "properties", and I believe you can select enabling the share in one of the tabs. In Vista (once you have started server service), you right click on folder and select "share", follow the menu for allowing user access. Google "share a folder vista" or "share a folder xp" as they have better instructions.
When done, you should be able to on your Windows PC in a cmd.exe window enter "dir \\machinename\sharename" and see the files for ps2linux - ps2linux_loop and swapfile. I assume for SMS you use ps2client instead of Windows share? Otherwise ignore the above, we have a different problem if SMS can see your Windows share and PS2-Linux cannot.
