Maximum number of mounts ?

I'm currently using Samba 2.2.5-pre1 on a Mandrake 8.1 system with kernel 
2.4.19-8.  I need to mount 15 remote filesystems.  I can manage 9.  Is there 
some kind of configuration option I need to set, or have I found a bug?

It _almost_ works.   On 3 of the mounts during linux boot, I get the error 
'ERRSRV ERRnoresource'.  The mounts that fail are on the same system as 5 
other mounts that work fine, so it's neither the LAN nor the client 
configuration.  Permissions are also correct (All of the shares are 
configured identically).  The mountpoint directories exist.

I turned debug up to 5, but I don't see anything that looks like the problem. 
My guess (and that's ALL it is) based on the error message, is that I've got 
some kind of resource exhaust.  How do I increase whatever it is that's 

I went thru the 'Samba Administrators Handbook' and I don't see any options 
that look applicable.  (I did try increasing the shared mem size - no change).
All of the servers are OS/2, if it matters.
