These daysI install the RedHat 7.2 and setup the samba succesfully...windows clients can find and access the samba folder to take file operation.
My question is how to make Linux access the Windows share folder or access samba servers of other linux machines?

You need some SMB "client" software on your Linux machine, and you may already have it.
First try "man smbfs" to see if you already have it installed, and if that doesn't work, visit the smbfs site at: http://va.samba.org/samba/smbfs/ .

Use the "smbclient" machine to list or access the shares. It works a lot like an FTP session. Or "smbmount" will allow you to mount a share and use it through regular filesystem access.
