Greets. I am running the latest release version on Linux RedHat 7.2. I
have full connectivity from my windows Domain to samba (ie. It is in the
domain). But from samba to the windows domain (ie. Any windows computer)
I am having problems with mounting shares.

Below are some screen dumps. I think this should be simple, it is just
beyond my reach right now. The following fails to work. I have tried all
variations including mount -t smbfs -o username=xxxx,password=xxx
//paladin/software mnt, etc...

[root at mobile smoses]# mount -t smbfs //paladin/software mnt
execvp of smbmnt failed. Error was No such file or directory.smbmnt
failed: 1

Yet I know I have connectivity, I can issue the following and it works
fine (Paladin is a Win2K DC).

[root at mobile smoses]# smbclient -L paladin
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Domain=[HQ] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
