Mounting external network attached storage

I had the same problem with fedora core 5. Obviously your samba-server has
unix extensions enabled.
My solution:

Use following commands as root before mounting  the samba share:

/sbin/modprobe cifs
echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled

In Fedora, you can put these commands in /etc/rc.d/rc.local. I don't know
the corresponding file in dapper.
