[Bug 579857] Re: automount and auto.smb not working

I did the following and it works:

apt-get install autofs smbfs smbclient
echo "/smb /etc/auto.smb" >> /etc/auto.master
mkdir /smb
/etc/init.d/autofs restart
ls /smb/buffalo/share (buffalo is a samba host, share is the share name - replace with local details)

Initially this was not working for me, since I did not have smbclient
installed and it is called by auto.smb.
