You need to check which samba tool it is using to connect, and then what
the options are.

One bug I know of is that smbmount sometimes fails to do the right thing
for 'guest' users. Upgrade to 2.2.2 on the client for a fix. smbclient 
does not have that bug.

But you should use NFS (or some other fs designed with unix in mind)
between 2 unix boxes ...
