SMB Connection failed

 I get the following error when i try to mount a windows share on my
embedded target 
>>93: session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0
>>SMB connection failed.

 I am using the command 
>>smbmount //win-mac-netbios-name/share-name /mnt/sambashare
 Samba then complains about some codepages missing, but moves on and prompts
me the password. I have set no password on the windows machine for the
"guest" account. [I have pasted the smb.conf used in both the server and
client below ( i use the same smb.conf ).]
 I leave the password empty and press enter. It then gives the above
mentioned errors.

 This was working fine a few weeks ago when we were using the full blown
Red-Hat distribution built for our embedded target (MIPS). Now we have
scaled down the linux to minimal files ( to fit to our flash ) and i beleive
something is missing; which causes the problem. 

 Can somebody please help me resolve this.

Thanks and Regards,
