I use CIFS for all of my samba mounts, and it seems to work fine.  I
also have a mix of Hardy and Intrepid.

What happens when you try:
sudo mount -t cifs //<ip of server/<share name> /<mount point> -o
username=<samba user>,password=<samba password>

This is an example from my /etc/fstab.  I have the noauto set since this
my laptop and it is not always connected to my home LAN.   Also note
that I have DNS working internally, you may need to use an IP instead of
the hostname.
