Wierd things happening... Server: Samba 2.0.5a (default RH 6.1 version)
Client: NT 4 SP4
I do:

smbmount //server/share mnt -U myname

It asks me for a password.  I give it a password.  It fails.  When I
tried again, it said that mnt no longer exists.  ls mnt gives me this

ls: mnt: Input/output error

Suggestions? (on how to fix, AND how to keep it from happening again)
