Thanks Nick and Rick for your input, I set suid on both smbmnt and smbumount
but it still failed. Here is the error message:
cannot mount on /mnt/shp3: Operation not permitted
smbmnt failed: 1
mount.smbfs: ioctl failed, res=-1
Could not umount /mnt/theDirectory: Invalid argument
Thanks again for your help!
