	Hello there all,
Gerald's suggestion was the one that solved my problem.

I re-compiled again using the following values on my local.h :

#define MAX_OPEN_FILES 1024    ( instead of the default 100 ) for Clearcase
to work.....

Increased the soft limit of file descriptors in the kernel by adding two lines
in /etc/system:

set rlim_fd_max = 1024
set rlim_fd_cur = 256

and changed the GUEST_SESSSETUP in local.h

#define GUEST_SESSSETUP 1 ( instead of the default 0 )

as well as remove guest,nobody from the invalid users in my smb.conf, and making
public=yes the mounts i wanted visible..

Many thanks to  Gerald Carter   cartegw at Eng.Auburn.EDU

and everyone else who intended to respond.....
