    I went looking for smbfs in info mount and found it. But it says 
there that the current mount does not support smbsf. So I wonder how you 
discovered that this works? It talked to mount version 2.12 as not 
working. I see we have version 2.13 on my Ubuntu so perhaps that is why 
it works.

    It starts out like the usual manual mount call but then it uses -o 
to let you include name and password  and then the "//<samba 
mount point>" I have no idea where you found that :-)

    Maybe under NFS mounting?
