I'm using smbfs version 2.0.2 with kernel version 2.0.36 (hence i cannot use 
the samba release of smbmount). I am using the following command to mount my 
network share:

smbmount //server2/ftpdir /mnt/server2 -n

The error is:

mount error: No such device
Please look at smbmount's manual page for possible reasons

I've tried all the solutions given in the man page (eg. smbclient works fine 
with this share) without any luck. Any help is appreciated :)
