need mount version 6 ???

I just installed linux 2.1.85 on a Red Hat 5.0 box that was the 2.0.31
kernel. Now my smbfs is broken. When I try to access a share on another SMB
box, I get:

SMBFS: need mount version 6

smbmount returns "invalid parameter" error, IIRC.

I've gone cross-eyed staring at DejaNews today, trying to find a solution
to this, but so far only other people reporting the problem, and no one has
a solution.

Is this a known problem? Any cures?
