2: how to mount device 1 into device 2
When using samba you'll have to use smbfs or cifs. Not ntfs. For these filesystems to work you need the kernelmodules. I compiled them, and smbfs.ko
actually loads. cifs.ko has unresolved dependencies.
Unfortunately you'll also need a mount helper. This could be named mount.smb or smbmount. This evening I tried several binaries from different sources on my box, but noone worked. Maybe you can find a working one. It's called smbfs package, or smbmount. Packages made for Arm NASses could work. The package for Lenny doesn't work. It only wants to mount cifs.
The commands to get it working would be:
# insmod smbfs.ko
smbmount //server/share mountpoint
Maybe it's easier to try to get rsync server and client running.
