Please post those messages. If it is an oops you need to run it through
the program ksymoops that translates some things from addresses into
symbols (but old versions of ksymoops do a poor job with modules).

And could you also tell me the samba version your smbmount is coming from
and if the kernel is a standard kernel or one that is included in some
distribution (they usually add a few patches).

And finally, what command do you use to mount?
