smbfs ??

smbfs does not seem to be in edubunto or even breezy??
does this make sense if most of us have to live in mixed Windoze 

I can get Nautilus to connect to a server, but this seems to be useless 
for the programs with standard file-open-saveas dialogs as those server 
mount points (where are they) don't show up in the dialogs.

in my case I have no say over the backbone environment but I can use the 
best open source tools for the kids... I want a mount point to hang the 
existing student folders on that shows up in all the file dialogs for 
Gimp etc.

if there is a good reason this is left out, please correct me and point 
me in the right direction....
even when I tried to apt-get install smbfs (a tip I saw on the web 
somewhere) , apt-get declined to do it....
I am enthusiastic about the direction this distribution is taking but 
this is a show stopper for me at the moment...

thanks in advance for the help
