i emerged samba. then i went out and got a nice GUI for it called linneighborhood, because im 9%& shell illiterate and i hate learning new commands that require a bunch of switches.
I can see me brothers windows computer, but linNeighborhood tells me "SmbFS not built into kernel" when i try to mount it. so i did a make menuconfig in /usr/src/linux and went down to "FileSystems" and smbfs was indeed not built into the kernel...
so i enable it, make && deps straight from gentoo docs, reboot and still same error message.
anyone have an idea?

You say that you did a make deps... did you do a make bzImage make modules make modules install....
Copy your new kenel to the right place /boot.
and update your menu.lst for grub?

i followed the kernel compiling instruction on gentoo.org's installation instructions... this time i loaded it as a module istead of built into the kernel and it worked!!
while i have your attention how can i set it to mount my samba partition on boot, and give a user read and write permission>

Not sure on this one...

Best bet would be to put it in your /etc/fstab file...

Glad to here you got it working.

the commands i used to recompile my kernel can be found on this site at "step 14"
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/build.html

i think it covers everything you asked...
what do i put in fstab... what exactly is it... i know i contains my partition tables, but do i just put the command "mount -t smbfs -o" etc. right in there?

where the heck can i find grub's menu.lst file? i screwed up writing that and it adds a few steps to my boot-up but i cant find it anywhere now...

im new to this whole linux thing...

man fstab or search google. There are plenty of good resources out there to learn about fstab.

mount your boot partition (mount /boot) and it should be in /boot/grub/menu.lst
