Tip & How-To about Fastora 2 Bays Network Attach Storage Tower (NAS-T2) ATA-100 Drive Case
Quick tip: when accessing the NAS-T2 from Linux, mount any NAS-T2 shares using smbfs, not cifs.
More detail: This tip presumes you're familiar with mounting filesystems in Linux and are trying to mount an NAS-T2 share in Linux. The older smbfs filesystem type for mounting Windows shares is deprecated in favor of the newer cifs filesystem type. However, the NAS-T2 is built on some older flavor of Windows and behaves very oddly when mounted as a cifs filesystem. Changing back to the older smbfs filesystem type solved all my problems.
