	AFAIK (and things could change - I'm not the IRIX wizard) there
is no smbfs (SMB File System) support in IRIX.  Smbmount is the mount
package which controls the smbfs file system in Linux.  No smbfs means
that smbmount is pretty much useless to you.  Now...  Someone COULD
have writen an smbfs driver for IRIX, but I think I would have heard
about it and I haven't, so you are probably out of luck there.

	A better option would be to look at smbsh and see if that will
do what you want to do without requiring and smbfs file system in the
IRIX kernel.
