You are using an old version of smbfs (an "old" kernel") that has a win95
bugfix compiled in. With NT that bugfix causes this mess. RH6.0 is one
dist that has this problem.

Recompile your kernel without the bugfix, or get the latest 2.2.x (x=12?)
that does this automatically.

The answer to this question should be in the searchable archive. I know
I've written it a few times now.
