+config SMB_FS
+ tristate "SMB file system support (OBSOLETE, please use CIFS)"
+ depends on INET
+ select NLS
+ help
+ SMB (Server Message Block) is the protocol Windows for Workgroups
+ (WfW), Windows 95/98, Windows NT and OS/2 Lan Manager use to share
+ files and printers over local networks. Saying Y here allows you to
+ mount their file systems (often called "shares" in this context) and
+ access them just like any other Unix directory. Currently, this
+ works only if the Windows machines use TCP/IP as the underlying
+ transport protocol, and not NetBEUI. For details, read
+ <file:Documentation/filesystems/smbfs.txt> and the SMB-HOWTO,
+ available from <http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto>.
+
+ Note: if you just want your box to act as an SMB *server* and make
+ files and printing services available to Windows clients (which need
+ to have a TCP/IP stack), you don't need to say Y here; you can use
+ the program SAMBA (available from <ftp://ftp.samba.org/pub/samba/>)
+ for that.
+
+ General information about how to connect Linux, Windows machines and
+ Macs is on the WWW at <http://www.eats.com/linux_mac_win.html>.
+
+ To compile the SMB support as a module, choose M here:
+ the module will be called smbfs. Most people say N, however.
+
+config SMB_NLS_DEFAULT
+ bool "Use a default NLS"
+ depends on SMB_FS
+ help
+ Enabling this will make smbfs use nls translations by default. You
+ need to specify the local charset (CONFIG_NLS_DEFAULT) in the nls
+ settings and you need to give the default nls for the SMB server as
+ CONFIG_SMB_NLS_REMOTE.
+
+ The nls settings can be changed at mount time, if your smbmount
+ supports that, using the codepage and iocharset parameters.
+
+ smbmount from samba 2.2.0 or later supports this.
+
+config SMB_NLS_REMOTE
+ string "Default Remote NLS Option"
+ depends on SMB_NLS_DEFAULT
+ default "cp437"
+ help
+ This setting allows you to specify a default value for which
+ codepage the server uses. If this field is left blank no
+ translations will be done by default. The local codepage/charset
+ default to CONFIG_NLS_DEFAULT.
+
+ The nls settings can be changed at mount time, if your smbmount
+ supports that, using the codepage and iocharset parameters.
