can someone tell me the different between the smbmount included with samba
(1.9.18p10 compiling for 2.1.126)
and the smbmount included with smbfs.

Using the smbfs one I can mount my NT server under a mount point fine.

Using the samba one I just get a smb: \> prompt and typing commands like
ls or help in the prompt doesn't work. Using the samba smbclient gives
the prompt to, but at least commands like ls and help work. I still can't
find an option to mount the share under a directory.

[root at cygnus docs]# smbmount //Zerocool/C$ <password> -U Administrator
Added interface ip=<my client ip> bcast=<my broadcast addy> nmask=
Server time is Thu Nov  5 12:47:48 1998
Timezone is UTC-5.0
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Windows NT 4.0] Server=[NT LAN Manager 4.0]
smb: \> ls
ls: command not found
smb: \> help
help: command not found

I tried \\'s for the service name too. That generated an error.
Any help is appreciated.
