The smbfs module in the RedHat 6.0 kernel has a win95 bug workaround
enabled. That workaround produces this result with NT.

In later kernels this is done automatically (2.2.10?). Either recompile
the kernel (the smbfs module) or upgrade it (there is probably a .rpm
somewhere on a RH6.0 update site).
