Mount point goes invisible

I'm just getting started, and getting quite a strange result. I've been
able to mount my (login hal) Linux home directory as E: on my w95 system,
but when I try to "smbmount //isdn2/AMDAHL-WORK /mnt/amdahlwork", where
/mnt/amdahlwork is an empty directory on Linux, isdn2 is defined in
/etc/hosts as 192,168.1.2, the address the W95 box uses, and AMDAHL-WORK
is the name under which a certain W95 directory is shared, I get
# smbmount //isdn2/AMDAHL-WORK /mnt/amdahlwork
Added interface ip=192.168.1.10 bcast=192.168.1.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
Added interface ip=188.8.131.52 bcast=184.108.40.206 \
Connection to isdn2 failed
Could not umount /mnt/amdahlwork: Device or resource busy
Now "mount" shows it as having been mounted -- the list includes
//isdn2/AMDAHL-WORK on /mnt/amdahlwork type smbfs (0)
but ls /mnt/amdahlwork ==>
ls: /mnt/amdahlwork: Input/output error
Last night, in addition, "ls /mnt" did not show amdahlwork after the
mount. After "umount //isdn2/AMDAHL-WORK", it reappeared.
FWIW, /var/log/samba/log.smb contains
[2000/08/28 22:39:56, 1] smbd/files.c:file_init(216)
file_init: Information only: requested 10000 open files, 1014 are
[2000/08/28 22:39:56, 0] smbd/server.c:main(683)
standard input is not a socket, assuming -D option.
I'd appreciate any advice.
I am a UNIX network engineer, can read tcpdump output, etc., but am
totally inexperienced using W95 sharing or with Samba.
