I was trying to mount a Windows share as a regular user on my system and 
smbmount said that smbmnt should be installed 'suid root'.  I know how 
to do this, but are there any real issues that arise with this like 
anything else?  I really would like my regular linux users to be able to 
mount shares using smbmount, but will I be opening myself up to problems 
with this?
