build tkLAMPServer

  1. install Turnkey LAMP Server from CD (take defaults, select use entire disk, set password to n with special characters)
  2. set ip for eth0 to
  3. use WebMin (from my workstation) to set host name to tkLAMPServer and search domain to homeGroup
  4. log in as root and 'apt-get install cifs-utils'
  5. test PHPMyAdmin (, Web Shell (, PHPInfo (
  6. create folder /Stan-and-Jeanne.com (755) and in Stan-and-Jeanne.com create folders ooframes (755), pictures (755), family (755), and logs (777)
  7. add to the end of /etc/fstab
    1. //    /Stan-and-Jeanne.com/ooframes    cifs    ro,guest    0    0
    2. //    /Stan-and-Jeanne.com/pictures    cifs    ro,guest    0    0
    3. //    /Stan-and-Jeanne.com/family    cifs    ro,guest    0    0
    4. //    /Stan-and-Jeanne.com/logs    cifs    ro,guest    0    0

After boot the 4 mount points are empty.  If I manually perform the mounts, they all work.  I scrolled DMESG and found messages about eth0.  Attached JPEGS document some of what I see.

Can someone help me understand what's happening, please?

   mount -a -t cifs
