Problem with smbmount on RedHat 6.0

Hi there,

Recently I tried to mount a partition from NT 4.0 on a RedHat 6.0 box
(Linux kernel version 2.2.5-15) by using smbmount. Everything is fine
except that the date/time on the files and directories in the mounted
partition is totally wrong. 

For example, following are the date/time shown on the RedHat box:

drwxr-xr-x   1 shanweic csrl          512 Jul  3  1997 ./
drwxr-xr-x   1 shanweic csrl          512 Feb  8  2025 ../
-rwxr-xr-x   1 shanweic csrl          614 Jan 10  1902 nic-install.txt*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 shanweic csrl         1753 Aug 29  2029 smb-mount.txt*

While the correct date/time as shown by my NT box are:

11/16/99  05:29p        <DIR>          .
11/16/99  05:29p        <DIR>          ..
11/12/99  01:25p                   614 nic-install.txt
11/16/99  07:11p                 1,753 smb-mount.txt

I wonder how I can fix this problem. Are there any parameters I missed?
Does RedHat 6.1 fix the problem? Or do I need to get a patch from some
