Does the win95 box answer to the (netbios?) name isdn2?

The "Could not umount" is smbmount tripping itself up. It can't umount on
some errors because it is itself keeping the mount open. That leaves it
mounted but not connected to anything which causes Input/output error
later. I have a patch for this, but this is not your problem.
The real problem is "Connection to isdn2 failed". Can you connect like
this if you use smbclient? ie 'smbclient //isdn2/AMDAHL-WORK'

smbmount doesn't log to the samba log.
