smbmount doesn't preserve case?

I attempted to run the Linux install of Mathematica by smbmounting the
CD-ROM from an NT box.  I could see the CD just fine, but all the
filenames were in uppercase.  Linux/Unix doesn't like that.   Is there a
way to tell smbmount to preserve case?

Looking at the man page it says that smbmount is a wattered down version
of smbclient.  I sure don't see how.  smbclient doesn't mount the remote
file system in the same way smbmount does.  Does any body know how I can
mount an smbfs and preserve case?
