smbmnt and disabling mtab update

  I'm trying to run smbmount on a machine with the root filesystem mounted
as read only (it is a little embedded Linux PC which I want to pick up
some files from its controlling NT box).

  The problem is that smbmnt doesn't appear to support the -n flag that
normal mount supports which avoids accessing /etc/mtab.

Can any one suggest any solutions to this ?
