Bingo! No smbfs!
The error message needs fixing to read that the file system is not
supported by the kernel. Added to my "todo" list.
If that gives you and error, report that back to me.
If it doesn't give you and error, try your smbmount command and
report that back to me.
If you get an error from the modprobe command, then you don't have
smbfs compiled for that kernel or there is something wrong with the module.
If the modprobe succeeds and your smbmount then succeeds, then
you don't have the kernel module loader compiled in or running. You then
need to either compile smbfs into the kernel, OR enable the kernel module
loader, OR add a script to always load the smbfs file system module.
