Verify that you have the smb filesystem (smbfs) compiled for the running
kernel (in kernel or as a module) on the slackware box.

AFAIK samba 2.0.5 doesn't support -u/-g, but 2.0.6 does (different
syntax). Since you are using smbfs (or trying to :) you'll want 2.0.6
anyway for the smbmount bugfixes.
